Boat Races and Birthdays

I still feel like I’m trying to catch up with these posts so photo montage and commentary time!

Dan made this video with some clips from his GoPro on our way, picnicking, racing, and goofing off in the pool house!

We also watched the Bournemouth Air Festival with Steve and Hannah from their balcony again this year.  Not nearly as sunny as last year, but still a lot of fun.

My friend, Lian, and I went out to dinner one evening at a newish restaurant in Poole, The Stable.  They only serve pizzas and pies and they also have a huge selection of ciders.  Definitely my kind of place!
