August a busy month!

August saw me and hubby celebrating our silver wedding anniversary.  We had a family BBQ on what I think was the hottest Sunday afternoon of the month.  On the actual day of our anniversary we went to the Lea park Hotel where we had our wedding reception 25 years ago, for a lovely meal.
 The the following Saturday we went off to Gran Canaria for a weeks holiday.  It was very hot there! We stayed a privately owned apartment. The swimming pool was lovely and quiet and the beach was gorgeous. Our one and only excursion was a jeep safari.  It was really good fun, the driver would pretend to fall asleep leaving me panicking as I held on to the steering wheel.  We also went on a camel ride. We had a scary experience there, as the camel behind us was pushed into our camel by the camel behind him who had freaked out. My arm was caught between the metal bars of the seats on the camels as was hubby's knee.We also swam in a reservoir the temperature was 45 degrees in the mountains.
On our return to the UK we only had a few days before we went down to Burnsall in England for a wedding.  Burnsall is a very small village in the middle of nowhere with no mobile phone connection. The hotel where the wedding reception was held was very old and quaint. It was called The Red Lion. The scenery was breathtaking and we fully understood why David & Helen chose to have their wedding there. It gave me the opportunity to make a headdress for myself to wear. I made this one called Hayley.

While we were at the wedding there was a Viking festival. Sometimes we didn't know where we should the wedding or watching what was going on at the festival.  Here are some pictures I took of it while we were at the wedding.
