Another glorious day, temperatures around 90 degrees so parasols were essential.
Al and I had a full on morning, preparing salads, marinading meats etc for Alison and Peter and the gang. Alison had her brother over from Aussie so we were 9 altogether.
We managed to get all 9 of us on the top terrace under the shade.
Guided tours and dips in the river before we had delicious spicey chicken and BBQ marinaded pork which was excellent. An abundance of salads and then the famous Breezy Banana cake was a winner!!! with some home grown rhubarb too, not to mention the cheeses. No need for supper at all.
A really relaxed lunch then the girls wanted to go up to the tree platform so we roped them up and got them all up and down safely which I think they enjoyed in hindsight!
They offered to come and help fell the dead tree tomorrow which will be great and then they can take the wood back down for firewood for the winter.
They all trundled off around 6pm ish so Al and I had a speedy tidy up before sitting up on the top terrace playing cards till it was dark and then to sleep.
A really fun day, well we enjoyed it anyway.
