Prue has her biennual exhibition with her friends at Grantchester village hall with Friday being the private view where they offer wine and snacks and the show on each day from 10am-5pm. And despite the poor weather Prue had her best ever show by selling 11 paintings over the weekend. She was a very happy bunny and paid for my share of the celebration meal afterwards at the Red Lion.
Today we fly to Maypole airfield in Kent which is almost next to the Prince of Wales pub. We need to cross Stansted airport and then Southend airport to get to Kent. After a 45 min flight we land at Maypole airfield and talk to the owners. We then follow this by a nice lunch at the Prince of Wales before we fly back at 3pm. This time we fly around Stansted.
We are going to a formal dinner at Corpus Christi college in Cambridge which means we dress to impress. After a champagne reception we have a excellent 3 course dinner. The after dinner speeches were a bit too long but we all enjoyed ourselves.
A pleasant enough day and flying to Gt Massingham where we have lunch with Beccy and Gordon at the Dabbling Duck pub. A very nice lunch which is followed by a gentle walk along the duck pond, full of dabbling ducks!
We all fly back and get back to Fowlmere by 4pm.
