Today in Ross-on-Wye is Carnival Day. Ours is not a grand affair in comparison with many around the world but it is an event where the town comes out and gathers together. However, this year you could hardly say that there were throngs of people on the streets. Our big day in Summer does not seem to be quite such an event as it used to be. Maybe it is because of the weather today, quite dull with showers, or perhaps because there are not as many floats as there have been in years gone by. It is all the more credit to those who do make the effort to take part in the display and to those who come out to support it.
As I arrived home wet and dishevelled the sun came out! Hey ho, at least those river revellers will have fun as they wave their balloons and eat their ice creams.
