Cool
Evening at a steam rally

I am spending the weekend at a steam rally.
At the moment I am in the beer tent, drinking mild , listening and watching an acoustic band called the Delta Pilots, very good.

Just outside at a couple of showmans engines with all the lights going and a big fairground organ playing, it's great.

There will be proper photos when I get home whenever that is.

This is it for the evening, the pilots are doing a blinding version of Romeo and Juliet, and I need more beer.

Wifi camera fed to iPhone .

See wifi cameras are not a gimmick.....

Those old steam tractors are cool, but can be a bit dangerous. Every once in a while you hear of one with a sticky relief valve and KA BOOM!

He is one of the guys here I'd like to hang out with the most. After a couple of days I suspect we would either be buddies for life or kill each other.

View from my tent this morning, people waking up to the sound of generators , tractors and badly played three string blues.

I am camped near the trade area opposite some motorbikes and where I guess will be a load of classic cars.

The engines are in another area.
