ABC Wednesday - V is for Vroom Vroom
I wasn't sure what I was going to post for V until I saw Babooshka's Flying Bike. It reminded me of the motorcycle display team I'd watched two years ago. Vroom vroom, I thought, hearing the sound of roaring engines in my head, time to get those photos I took out there.
In 2006 we took a cruise visiting the Baltics. I started a blog to publish pictures from the trip and recount our adventures. See Baltic 2006. Half the journey has been recorded but I got busy with one thing and another and hit writers block with it. Bits and pieces of the story have appeared elsewhere including two posts here about Oslo.
At the end of the cruise we stayed overnight in Southampton before flying home to Manchester the next day. You can read my Trip Advisor report on the hotel.
The hotel was about a fifteen minute walk from the village of West End to where I went to buy some sandwiches and other provisions for lunch. I discovered it was Carnival Day, so later in the afternoon I went back to enjoy looking around the stalls. Highlights were eating strawberries and ice-cream in the refreshment tent, being invited to sit in the shade by members of the organising Hamble Valley Rotary Club and watching the No Limitz Motorcycle Display Team in action.
The displays were excellent and these photos don't really do them justice and I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get around to thanking them for providing an enjoyable end to our cruise holiday.
