Sunshine and Lightning

2011 Bumps & Carnage party at Ditton Corner

Sunshine for most of the day to watch the racing

Foreboding skies and lightning bolts accompanied the final divisions of the day

But the rowers weren't fazed...

...and the little ones had fun in wellies.


Let a Thousand Brollies Bloom

And then of course we had a couple of downpours in the afternoon. A fine collection of decorative rain protectors were wielded.

 

This is the twelfth year we have held our Bumps Party. We've had a rain shower on three of the twelve years. It hasn't stopped us enjoying ourselves yet.
