Very hot today as we walked up to Fair Hill to the horse fair. How good to see such well-looked after horses, hear the clip-clop of hooves and the jingle of harness. A real flavour of more colourful past times.

Then back to the river Eden to watch the horses being washed. Very busy in the town and nice to hear the occasional word in Romany.Appleby Horse Fair 2013 Second Day 017

    I went on Saturday and am also thinking of putting a post out – just photos really. Not that I got any really great ones as it was so crowded on Saturday and so there’s always people getting in the way etc. I’m thinking Friday might be a better day (less crowded) another year? Wasn’t it lovely and hot 🙂
