What a week *sighs* of lazy loafing and sunny strolls around Stow-on-the-Wold. Where, bolt-holed away from the usual rush and bustle, a seven day stretch-out feels more like a fortnight. Highlights of this trip (our 9th now) include.
A cross-country ramble to Chastleton House. Sold by Robert Catesby (mastermind of Gunpowder/Parliment plot) to fund Guy Fawkes fireworks.
An improv tour of the Cotswolds Brewing Company - beer literally brewed in a barn.
The Glam Rock Pigs and minted that morning lambs at Old Farm
And Puffin Annual Number One found at Evergreen Livres
Just one low point. A £3.25 scotch egg from Daylsford Organic which tasted only of reformed cardboard and Gloy.
If you're ever heading that way, two new(ish) tunes perfect for rolling around the wolds are..
She & Him - In The Sun
Harper Simon - Shooting Star
Although track of the trip had to be...
