Sunday 29 May - Special Day

We had to exercise care leaving the apartment this morning as we are on the route of the Shrewsbury Grand Prix - cycle racing.  The cycling started around 1200 with a free for all after which the serious racing started.  The weather was very good and the entire town was in a good mood.  The flowers in the Quarry Gardens, particularly the rhododendrons, were beautiful. A mother mallard was proudly displaying her ten small ducklings and keeping them under very close control with just a few quacks.

Dinner this evening was at the Lion and Pheasant.  I had Jacobs Ladder which was a form of pulled beef
Mary had fish - grilled Cornish Brill
