    A Trip to our Local ....

    Woke up yesterday morning and the sun was blazing. Should have worked in the studio on our new album with the band, but we both decided it was to nice and we were suffering from red cow withdrawal symptoms. This is a little place we try and get to a few times a month, although we haven't been for nearly two now due to this recording thingy business.
    So please join us on a typical day out to the red cow and surrounds .
    Two buses and just over an hour later we start our trek down lanes, fields n sty's




    Which eventually brings you to here


    A lovely spot to linger only noise was a bumble bee


    Then along the waterside and a bit more countryside

    The folk are really friendly, always real good guest ales and fab pub grub






    They even sell eggs from one of the locals gardens


    Thats it .. if you were with us I would have bought you a pint .... by the time we left the pub was crammed packed inside and outside ... the chap with the hat on at the bar was playing a guitar and singing away with friends outside when we left ...

    Great pictures... looks like a great spot for lunch. How long does it take you to get there?

    Looks like a great place. Lucky guy!

    Wonderful pictures Derek; through them, you took us with you on that treck. For that I thank you. It's unfortunate that I couldn't share a beer with you at the end of that virtual tour.
