And now the party's over
It was a nice sunny morning but we were in recovery mode. We had breakfast at around 9.00am and watched all the tents and caravans packing up, The queue was horrendous just to get out of the field.At 11.00am Phil and Marlene turned up to have a cup of tea and say their goodbyes. We then walked back to the car park with them as we wanted to see the charity cricket match which was Fairport Convention v Cropredy cricket club. It didn't start until 2.00pm so we went back to Derwent6 for lunch. The cleaning up operation had already started, but there was rubbish everywhere. The village seemed dead compared to the last couple of days. After a nice salad lunch we walked back down to the cricket and watched Fairport get trounced. It was lovely sitting out on the green with a blanket and a beer of course. After seeing all the stars we left with the clouds closing in and it seemed to be getting a bit colder, so we made our way back to Derwent6. In the afternoon and evening we watched the Athletics, enjoying our gold medal in the heptathlon, and saw Mr Bolt, the fastest man in the world, run 9.58.
