On our way home...and a fair on Saturday!! ;-)



On our way home from the Hampshire/Surrey border, we called in at Farnham, a busy little town

with much character. It was a flying visit as we had a few things to

pack in on our journey.

There's always plenty going on in Farnham and here's a lovely

little website with all the info etc.








We continued along the A31 to this delightful and pretty little town:

Alresford.








What a treat!

It's a lovely place with lashings of history as well.

Hmm...vintage tea parties!

Yes, I could live here, quite happily!! ;-)




Although it is the River Alre which flows through Alresford, it was on the River Itchen,

(which flows near Alresford), many years ago, where I  first spotted

a Kingfisher. I'll never forget that sight!







Coffee and a stroll and we were back in the car,

and on our way home via Dorchester (where I forgot

to take out the camera!) and Honiton.


We had a lovely break. A change of scenery is always good for the heart,I think!


But there's nothing like being back home, in Devon!!

Back to teaching and back to a lovely fair...

This Saturday, I will be here:





Hope to see some of you  !!

;-)

yes, Arlesford is a lovely little town! Visited there several years ago (so long ago I didn't even have a digi camera in those days!)
