AN AMUSING SIGHT


From our kitchen window which overlooks the village street we often espy unusual passing traffic.  Yesterday a freshly painted gypsy caravan pulled by the usual piebald type horse plodded through.  The horse was led by an oldish man in a very smart big black hat.   Today we did our usual Waitrose shop and found the caravan parked in the disabled bays with the horse tied up to a hedge which was quickly becoming demolished!   We bought some carrots for the horse and discovered from the owner that they had travelled from Cornwall and were slowly making their way to Appleby.  The horse was called Tarantino!

Also this morning, whilst doing the breakfast washing up, through the kitchen window we saw a cyclist labouring along towing an enormously long canoe which had warning flags front and aft!    I must keep my camera on the kitchen window sill!!

I reckon I could just about bring myself to clean my kitchen windows to see sights like that, especially the horse and caravan!

The man down the road builds gypsy-style caravans. They are taken away on low-loaders. I wondered what happend to them!!

I would love to have seen a picture of the caravan parked up and the horse chombling the hedge. It's always the way that you leave the camera at home just when you need it- I've done it so many times too.

Lovely weather for a caravan trip, don't fancy living in one through the winter though.
