Towards A Wedding Album

Despite the pouring rain we had planned to visit a Ploughing Match just outside Bransgore this morning. I thought it might be a good photo opportunity. Unfortunately the ground was too muddy and slippery either for Jackie to park the Modus, or for me to risk slipping over.

We continued on to Ringwood hoping to buy a wedding album for Becky and Ian. Wessex Photo didn’t have one in stock but have ordered some samples for us to look at.

We took the opportunity of brunching at Cafรฉ Aroma. Even there, my gourmet burger was served on a lump of wood with chips delivered in a miniature supermarket trolley which had lost its wheels. Jackie’s choice was jacket potato with tuna and mayonnaise filling. She felt fortunate to have a plate.

This afternoon I printed a complete set of A4 size photos taken by me and by Miche. In deference to parental wishes, no images of Poppy were included in yesterday’s post, but there are quite a few for Mr and Mrs Steele.

Elizabeth returned this evening from a couple of days at Mum’s. The three of us dined on Hordle Chinese Take Away fare. Jackie drank Hoegaarden. My sister and I drank Albali Reserva 2012.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. Wow, what a burger! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜€ But I think I would like what Jackie ordered!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    An album for the wedding photos will be a wonderful gift for the bride and groom. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We are getting hard rains tonight and they say it will rain again tomorrow.
    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. There are a lot of companies out there, wouldn’t it be cheaper for you to order an album yourself on-line. Amazon isn’t the only company and it’s usually the most expensive.

    1. Possibly, but I prefer the personal touch when I can get it. I do have a very large white album I bought on line. I bought three for before and after photographs of the garden and couldn’t get them large enough locally. If I don’t like what Wessex Photo come up with I will use that. Thanks a lot, GP

  3. Wow–those lunches! I haven’t seen the wood as plate trend here, but I did see some delicious looking french fries (chips) in a fryer basket like that yesterday.
    I’m sure the photo album with your wonderful photos will be an excellent and appreciated gift.
