What have I done this weekend? Well on Sunday I became a race spectator again. Older daughter took part in the Bath Half yesterday. She was raising money for the charity Send a Cow, a good choice for a farmer daughter.
I was chief chauffeur and spectator. I always quite enjoy the race atmosphere, watching all the runners and wandering around the city with no traffic. My first stop gave me a great backdrop of St Mary's Church, Bathwick as the first runners approached giving a possibility for the Winter Photography Scavenger Hunt no. 17 A church with a tower or spire.
I managed to miss seeing her here so I moved onto another location where I was more successful and managed to spot her on both loops. There was plenty of entertainment while I waited. Some lively youngsters, I would think probably students, entertained and cheered from their lofty viewpoint. A saucepan and spoon providing suitable encouragement.
Further along an open top bus provided another great platform for supporters.
There was as always the usual array of costumes. Would you want to run in one of these?
Local businesses seemed to be entering into the spirit as can be seen by the menu board at this rather quirky coffee bar.
Older daughter completed with a time of one minute less than last time and has raised a good amount of money for her charity.
I think she deserved every mouthful of this pud at our lunch out after. Don't you?
