Vroom Vroom

It was my dad's birthday on Saturday. So we decided to take him on a mystery day out.  We arranged to meet my mum and dad in a layby at the Kendal turnoff of the M6, told them to wear outdoor gear, leave the dog at home and all would be revealed!

They followed us to Grizedale where the Malcolm Wilson Rally was taking place. We took a picnic and what a great day we had. Weather was ok - no rain which is always a good thing in the lakes.  I didn't really know what to expect as I've never been to a rally before but it was quite exciting.

Nick found a good spot for photos and got a little bit carried away with the continuous shoot mode. We ended up with over 800 pics of the passing cars..... iPhoto is running a tad slowly now!

The noise was great too. Lots of backfiring and roaring engines - even saw flames coming out of the back of some of the cars.  Despite a few wobbles no-one swerved off this corner although we heard that a couple of the cars rolled over in a different part of the course.
