Five minutes after arriving I was scurrying back to the car to retrieve my sunglasses and my brand new selfie stick! Those who know me well will be aware that I rarely miss an opportunity for a selfie (or a piece of cake, Heather), but this particular selfie wasn’t my idea…
There wasn’t time to use the selfie stick again but the sunglasses were needed all afternoon as Larkhill was bathed in winter sunshine. Don’t get me wrong, this is the beginning of February after all, but it was warm enough for me to ditch my coat by the time I was on duty for the ladies open presentation.
There was much excitement after the AGA sponsored ladies open race – won by My Flora and Hannah Watson – as the win gained owner, Sarah Dawson another 10 points for the AGA All Comers championship. Sarah has strengthened her lead and now has 34 points, she is also chasing the award for the most points earned in the championship!
Mrs S wanted to kick on before the last so that we could get a bit of daylight driving under our belts, however, I grabbed the camera (and the car keys) and did a runner. I’m so pleased that I did because I would have missed a win for Lucy Wheeler, on the aptly named Done A Runner! The photos are not the best I have ever taken, but at least I got some.
I’d already taken the AGA banners down (just as well) but still wasn’t prepared for the rocket I got when I eventually made it back to the car. Oh well, it was worth it, although it could have been much worse as I was looking longingly at the party which was in full swing as we pulled away. My foot hovered over the brake but I thought better of it and I’m sure the Barbers will have many more parties before the season is over. Anyway, that couldn’t possibly take the gloss off another fabulous day on a point-to-point course, but it was a quiet journey home!
