The Rose Society Gardens in St.Albans opened a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed some sunshine.
The mayor of St.Albans was there too!

Here's the inside of the brasserie

Live music too!

Interesting bar area

I think SWMBO was trying to make me jealous?

Harrogate Brasserie

SWMBO has recently been to a conference in Harrogate and was lucky enough to book in at the Harrogate Brasserie which she said was excellent.
What about this for a bedroom?

Huge bathroom as well.

Chinnor Railway Diesels

Diesel going nowhere today
This is the train which was going to Bledlow Bridge Halt - and back!
We saw up to five red kites at any one time
You may need to click on the photo to enlarge it!
What a good half a day out - recommended by JR

Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway

A couple of weekends ago we went to the
Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway

At the moment it only runs from Chinnor Station to Thame Junction but an extension is planned to Princes Risborough when the old line is restored.

It's all run by volunteers and a very enthusistic lot they are too. Firstly we had a ride in a guards van behind the steam train shown above, then we rode a diesel to the end of the line before visiting the signal box.
