Urban to Rural
This past weekend was spent on the fringes of the spectrum - a day in London, and a day in Suffolk farmland.
Sunday we went to the South Suffolk Show, which is like a county fair, with out the hype or hoo-haa American fairs seem to muster. It too was a lovely day out. We watched judging of livestock, tractor/thresher demonstrations, horse showing and jumping, and a fox hound demonstration. After which, kids and families were invited into the ring to pet the pack off 30 odd dogs and be "licked clean" by them. Hard to imagine them catching and ripping up a fox with how mellow they were. AND Olive managed to make her way into today's edition of the East Anglian Daily Times.
