Whose boots are these shoes?

Which I didn't know anything about.
But it flew over our house 2 and a half times.
Really, really low.
I very nearly burst with excitement.
You see, sadly I am a bit of a plane freak/geek. I blame growing up in the shadow of Gatwick Airport. I am especially interested in Military planes and have a very large pile of books about them! That was one of the added extras of my Technical Librarian job, a lot of aviation-related stuff.
Honestly, I cannot believe what has happened; I even sent a little 'thank you' to Him upstairs! It was that special.
So, yes, a bit of a cheat with the photo, but hey-ho, there you go.
And she really is the one that got away. She is one of only two airworthy Lancasters, the other being in Canada apparently. So, I feel even more lucky.

We arrived just as a boat was using the lock.
In 12 years, that is the first time I have ever seen the lock used!
Hopefully, next year when the marina opens it will get lots more use.
You may of noticed I've done a bit of blog 'housekeeping'. I seemed to be in a bit of a muddle with who I did and didn't follow, so I think I've got that sorted now. (Basketweave and Bombshell!)
Also, a big welcome to Lesley from that wonderful shop in Totnes, This'n'That,
and also to Vanessa, of Coco Rose,
Sorry to be so slow in giving you a shout. Anyhow, welcome!
Another W/E looms and then Mr B returns to work after his Summer break. (Boo!)
Have a good 'un!

(My first ever tall sunflower, about 8ft high )
August Break #11

August Break #10
