Charlecote Manor - The Grounds 3/7

The River Avon, yes the Stratford one, flows through the grounds at the back of Charlecote Manor and this is a view out from the garden I posted yesterday looking towards the South and including some of the lovely parkland. Take a note of the small waterfall on the left, more of that tomorrow.  (Happy Birthday to me today, the one on which I enter my 70th.year, oh dear!!  I am being treated to lunch at Beaumanor Hall by Maureen today)

Don't worry about being 70 Brian, it's the new fifty - have a good day!
Brian Walbey: I'm only 69 Chris hence I'm entering my 70th.year, thanks for your wishes.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!!!! Congratulations! According to Geraldo Rivera (and Frank's son, Tom), 70 is the new 50! smile
This is lovely - I'd love to walk alongside this river.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, by saying I'm entering my 70th.year I meant I am 69 today, but what's a year either way at my age smile

Well, I declare. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Brian. And welcome to the septuagenarian world... where I'll join you in a couple of years. HA! I love this peaceful, idyllic scene for your milestone day.
Brian Walbey: Lovely scene isn't it. I'm only 69 today, so I enter my 70th.year today is what I meant, but a year either way doesn't make a lot of difference, we've had a nice day with the family this evening, even my daughter thought I was 70 today!!!
Happy Birthday Brian. Have a great lunch with Maureen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, we had a lovely lunch and then our two with the family round for tea, a good day.

I bet there were some good dragonflies there, Brian. Happy Birthday
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. I must admit I didn't see and Dragonflies, too busy looking at the scenery.
Birthdays are great! It means you are still here. Have a happy one. Though everyone is saying happy 70th, I am thinking you mean you are 69 today.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, it was a great day with all the family for tea, and yes, your thinking was right, even my daughter thought I was 70 today and bought me a 70 balloon, I must save it for next yearsmile

Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
Happy birthday Brian.
