Day two of our trip was a Saturday and Nanny's actual birthday. We all went out to one of our favourite local pubs, the Catherine Wheel, for lunch.
The front door of the pub!
About to make a toast to Nanny
Leaving the pub we found rain imminent:(
After lunch at the pub, why it was time for some rock balancing!
Then it was time for some can balancing!
Because it looked like rain my Mum, step-dad, aunt and her friend decided to go for a walk to the village of South Stoke. Of course we had to go by the field full of white opium poppies first.
A cinnabar moth we found!
The village's only pub, the Perch and Pike
After we had our fill of alcoholic beverages (and the rain had stopped) we made our way over to my uncle's house. Of course we had to stop by the Manor Farm where my grandparent's used to live.
The Manor's back garden with the second largest pigeon cote in the whole of Europe (seen over the churchyard wall)!
Gravestone in the churchyard!
A grain storage shed on balanced stones! These balanced stones are so rats cannot get into the building (the steps wouldn't have been there).
Of course at the point most far from any shelter the rain buckets it down!
Finally soaking wet we get to my uncle's house!
