After cancelling once, due to weather, we decided to take a chance and go ahead with the planned outing on October 31, even though the weather forecast didn’t look that exciting. Eleven of us meet up at the Wesburn cemetery car park at 6.30pm before heading down to the silos, which were built in 1905 to hold hops.
We parked over the river and made our way to the road, parallel to the silos. Some of the stragglers were fortunate enough to speak to the owners who invited us into the property to get a closer look. We headed out towards the silos, watching our step so as not to tread in the fresh cow pats scattered on the paddock.
There were lots of vantage points as we moved around the paddock, with everyone doing their own thing. A young bull took a fancy to Rose and Laurie, as they were leaving the paddock. Their playful dance kept the rest of us entertained. Unfortunately, no one thought to take a picture as we were too busy laughing. By about 8 pm it was becoming dark and the cloud cover prevented any hope of star gazing, so we headed back to our vehicles.
