More Kentwell.....

Still reeling from Nadal's defeat..... as another week flashes by, more photos from Kentwell.

Is it a cow?  Is it a donkey?  Is it real?

These photographs don't really show how big these French Donkey's were.   In spite of the field of lush grass behind them they preferred you to hand pick their lunch from the grass on this side of the fence
 The other animal that featured in site and sound was the peacock, a sad tale of a tail here because a fox had stolen his hen so he was calling and displaying as he tried to find another mate.

 So much to see.

Through the time tunnel......

  into the 16th century.  Yes, time for Kentwell again. 1556 to be precise.  We were greeted with music,
and the sun was shining. The gentry were taking a stroll.
and children were everythere.
People cooked
and rested
and gave us another wonderful day out.  NB Mark calendar for next year.
