We drove over to Nottingham on Friday evening and it was a very black sky and when we parked it just started to rain!!!! However after about ten minutes it stopped so DH and I set off to Goose Fair! Eldest and Fiancé with four of their friends were also going on Friday night but we did not see them.
Here are some pictures of the famous and great Nottingham Goose Fair:
DH and I queued for the Big Wheel which was taller thant the white Big Wheel!
Here are some of the pictures from our seat on the Wheel.
DH with me in our carriage!
I love this picture above, you can see how many people are there already and this was early!
Below is the Wheel we were on.
This picture above is how they cook the mushy peas on this one stall, which has been there for years, even when I was going as a little girl!!! They are the best! This will freak my good friend FarmQuilter out as she does not like mushy peas at all when she tried them when she was over here in the UK!!!!! I suppose they are an acquired taste! Normally you would eat them with fish and chips but at the fair you just have a pot of them and put mint sauce on them! I think, also, it is one of those foods that they taste better outside!!!!
The rain stayed away!!!!!
Have a wonderful week.
