The Mild Weekend

I was sceptical about the mild weekend we'd been promised, but it did indeed come to pass. Heading to Woking on Saturday afternoon to spend the night with friends, I took the scenic route via the A25 and Ranmore Common, and what a pleasure it was to be out on the bike and not be cold!

Sunday we visited Brooklands for a nose round the sold and unsold beauties from the previous day's classic car auction. There was also a meeting of the Austin and Morris Owners' Club (or Maustin and Orris, as an unfortunate announcer managed to say at one point), with some lovely old vehicles as well as examples of that well-known classic, the late-reg Metro.

Friends' small daughter is always very interested in the scooter and wants to sit on the back. This time she very much wanted me to turn the engine on and convey her across the cul de sac, but I sensed parental disapproval and had to refuse.
