Dorset starts today

By JuBarney
The Great Dorset Steam Fair starts their wonderful rally today for the rest of the week. My image shows FOUR showman's engines pulling the heavy load up Watford Gap in the "play pen" a feat that had never been seen before as they are normally stationery in a line up, and this fun was not encouraged! (They are normally looking highly polished, and perhaps generating for a showground ride) The men on the heavy load jump off at the top of the hill to manually apply brakes to the load to go down the other side.

Yesterday I was blown away by the wonderful response to my previous steam engine shot and all the UAs.

Weatherwise, I have been told Dorset has been hot each day this week so perhaps that is the place to go. It is a wonderful place to admire old tractors and steam engines, motorbikes, old vehicles, horses, craft stalls, a food tent, ordinary stalls and tat, and a lot more. Wish I was there!

Another dull and cloudy day here in Cornwall.
