This Fair is quite large and has music, food, plants, charities, therapies and lots, lots more.
I saw a couple of friends, bought some herbs and chillies, a very tasty falafel wrap and not only that the sun shone the whole time I was there.

It is many years since I have been there and the museum itself was closed for a number of years for refurbishment. Going to the museum during the school holidays is probably not one of my better moves but we had to think of somewhere uncover as the rain was really heavy.
The museum is very interesting and follows the history of the London Transport. As usual I took loads of photographs and have put some of them on flickr.
The ticket to the museum allows me to revisit during the next 12 months, so I think I will be back.

We popped into lots of the lovely little shops but managed to buy nothing! We then found a very pleasant restaurant called Farids Kitchen http://faridskitchen.com/ . Val had the Plat de Jour which was a Normandy Gallette followed by a Creme Brulee. I had a huge bowel of Moules and Frites, they were wonderful and I still had room for Tarte Tatin. Great lunch!
The day itself was really relaxing but we could have done with some slightly warmer weather, especially as it is the middle of August.

So I popped down to Hampton Court to see the cyclists on the way out.
Then found a seat, chatted to a another spectator over lunch and waited for the cyclists to come back.
It was a great morning and a really good atmosphere.

During the weekend we went to the Triangular Lodge, Rushton, which is basically a triangular lodge. The building, rooms and some of the windows are all triangular in shape.
We then went off to Lyddington to see the church and the Bede House.
There is a lovely stained glass window in the church but also above an inside door there is a glass engraved view of the church.

It was then time to have our picnic so it was off to at Rutland water. The church at Rutland looks quite amazing and there was also a boat race.
Finally we called in on Uppingham another picturesque town.
