We'll, hats off to all for the 'Lounging on the lawn' ' festival this weekend. Good beer, cider, and music. And Colchester weather - dry and sunny. first the beers (well, it is a beer festival) - Mersea - solid, well-made, nice pints. Colchester Brewery top quality - every beer is far too drinkable. Pitfield - funky - Woodbine racer usually cloudy and very complex - wine-drinkers' beer!
Music hit and miss - but don't miss our local rising stars Chloe Hawes and Josh Smith who also play tomorrow. Thrilled to meet these young musicians working hard to entertain us. Nice self-penned numbers... and mandolin tuning! Please catch them tomorrow at facebook.com/loungingonthelawn
Thanks to Chloe Hawes and Josh Smith for music and image. PS Mrs blogger recommends the User friendly cider (though the Carters is nice too)
