Thurs 12/8/10 – Balloon Festival, Bristol

Our first visitor in Leigh Woods was Stuart’s mum, Nor. She popped down “Sarf” over the International Balloon Festival weekend in mid August, which of course meant is was a mix of glorious sunshine and howling rain. The balloons take off from Ashton Court, Leigh Woods and given a prevailing Westerly there are spectacular views from the Clifton Suspension Bridge as they wend their way East, over the Avon Gorge and Bristol. Ashton Court is a beautiful old manor house in massive grounds complete with Deer Farm. Get the barbie on, I smell venison...
