A Day at the Races

On the recommendation of our neighbor, Diana, we drove over to the Montague Inn, to check it out for our 31st anniversary lunch.

That is Sean behind the bar serving another of his regulars. 

Luckily we met the owner, Sean O’Callahan. Not only did he make sure we were “properly” cared for, but he invited us to be his guests at the races at the Wincanton Racecourse.

It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day, finally. After taking Purdy and Lilly on a nice 1 + hour walk through the fields, we headed to Wincanton. It was another one of what Bev calls an “expected surprise”(more on “expected surprises” in another post).

We had so much fun meeting Sean’s wife, Susie, and his numerous friends and other guests at the Montague Inn’s private box. The free wine and food was a bonus.  Later, went down to the track for some photo’s.

It was a wonderful day. Today, we get to return to the Montague Inn for our fabulous lunch, accompanied by Purdy and Lilly, of course.

Life is grand, we are truly blessed.

See you on the road.

Caring for two dogs, two horses, two goats, two cats, and a bunch of chickens and roosters in a small village in a foreign country can be
daunting. But, not for us. (Or should we say not for Bev.) We have done it before,
As International Trusted House Sitters we get to make new friends with all sorts of critters. The best part, however, is making new human friends.
