A fabulous sunny, warm day. Brian and Marlene took us to one of the largest, still lived-in old mansions in England, Stoner House. The gardens are unspectacular but the house is wonderful and still lived in by members of the Stoner family. On the way there and back we passed wonderful scenery and a number of great pubs, one of which we stopped at, "The crooked Billet". We sat in the sunshine enjoying Persecco with rhubarb liqueur when Lynne demonstrated lightning reactions by saving her drink from sliding off the sloping table without spilling a drop.
