Kendal Calling has featured here once before with a clip from Tim Peaks Diner. (cannot get the link working right now, will be there later). We were there in person this year and a great time was had by all. No Edwyn Collins collaboration this time – still a brilliant line up, loads for the kids to do, lots of brilliant dressing up to spot and sun nearly all weekend except for Saturday eve til 10am on Sunday. The Charlatans headlined Saturday night so the rain didn’t matter too much. Festival going is a whole new game with children it has to be said, ours took a while to get the hang of it but all agree they would love to go again. Less stuff next time and more food.
Cocktails seemed like a good idea just as things were getting cooler and darker ready for the rain on the Saturday. There was a Sailor Jerry tent and off C went in search of some refreshment, and refreshing the Mojito was indeed and warming too. Yesterday I was given a whole bottle of Sailor Jerry rum by my lovely husband for our anniversary. I’ve been having a look on the website for inspiration and I love the idea of a Jerry Mule. ginger beer, lime and Sailor Jerry. I’ll let you know how it goes.
This last image is from Alnwick Castle where the children loved following the Harry Potter tour telling us all about the bits that were filmed there for the first two films. This is one of my favourite photos of the moment, I love that the 2 of them are walking in perfect time and the little shadow under their feet match. The castle is worth a visit and the treehouse is brilliant for a wee coffee stop, the rope bridges are a bit hairy though….
Have a good weekend everyone, especially those of us who start back at school next week. The Edinburgh Festival is getting into gear now and it is such a buzz living in the city at this time of year, but why. oh why, do the schools go back while it is on??????
