Saturday 18th June 2011   1 comment

This is the day of my big party. Margaret spent the day buying and preparing food. I did various things in the morning but left at 2.00 pm for Bournemouth station to pick up old school and university friend Nigel Mackie, who had just caught the train from Leeds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nigel is very much into art so we headed for  the Russell Coates Museum, which I must admit I had never visited before.

The museum holds an excellent selection of art and historical artifacts collected in the late 19th century.

 

 

 

 

Black Sheep – Cask Conditioned Celtic Rock

The party was a great success with about 80 guests, birding friends, work colleagues and members of the Nexus organisation predominating

The band was excellent as ever and Alan made sure everyone was on their feet for the dances.

L-R: Kara, Janis and Amber

One of the highlights of the evening was the arrival of Margaret’s daughter Janis and her two children Amber and Kara. They had just arrived from Gran Canaria where they live on a yacht and intend to stay in the UK until September
