That's what I said to myself
when I looked out of the window earlier.
So I left the hounds sleeping off their dinner,
and dashed downstairs for my bicycle.
I wasn't going far,
but it was an opportunity to get a little cycling in.
I was going down to the river
where the Wein Kirmes has been taking place.
The photo above should be an indication of what a kirmes is.
Kirmes is a funfair.
It's been taking place over this weekend,
and it's been Very Noisy.
They've even been firing off cannons
on Friday and Saturday,
much to the hounds consternation.
I think the cannons must indicate the start of proceedings.
After cycling along to where it was all taking a place,
I took the first photo,
and took this next photo...
It looks like two different days doesn't it?
Then I walked into the big marquee.
It was surprisingly busy for a Monday afternoon.
It's where most of the noise has been coming from over the weekend
in the form of music.
Outside the marquee,
and there's the obligatory-
There's always plenty of sausages at these events.
I liked this row of toys
that these girls were walking purposefully past.
Maybe to get to the Dodgem cars.
There were a few market stalls too.
And all next to the peaceful looking river.
I did get caught in the rain briefly.
But the sun soon came out again.
Then I was off back home,
to the hounds,
and a cup of tea,
and a cherry bun!
This post has been sitting waiting to be finished,
(which I've just done).
It's now half past midnight,
and the music is still going on at the Kirmes!
