What a superbly different weekend We’ve had. Friday night, set off for RAF Waddington near Lincoln. We had tickets for the airshow. Got there and camped out in the van in a pub car park 100m away from the gates. Got up and were just about the first in. Got an AMAZING spot right up front. Spent most of the day on top of the van watching the action. Saw Lancasters with spitfire and hurricane wing escort, tornados, The Red Arrow display team, the new Euro fighter Typhoon (VERY loud and fast) and a whole 7 hours worth of other stuff in the skies. Had a tour of an Awacs
(The one with the big mushroom on top) – Fascinating.
Noticed this slightly doctored sign on the way back home.. made me chuckle.
Yesterday, got up and went fishing to a really nice little pond with a friend. I caught nowt, my friend had a couple of 2lb’ers.
After that I came home collected the family and went tiddler fishing with the boys on the River Nidd. Loads more success here. I fell in, wrecked my phone and then cooked a fry up sarney out the back of the van then came home. Superb weekend.
