Eynsham Carnival

It’s become a bit of a yearly tradition now that the Posselwhites and Dicksons come together in July for the world famous Eynsham carnival, and this year marked our second attempt. It’s always a funny day out, filled with Morris men, candy floss and hot dogs, handmade quirky floats and fairground rides. Unfortunately the weather did rain on our parade and tried to put a dampener on things, but we donned our raincoats and wellies and braved the elements to mark the occasion. 

The cider was in full flow at 1pm and we caught a bit of the crazy float race before heading to the showground to get stuck in the mud. Apart from a torrential downpour that saw the crowds scrambling to take cover in the arts and crafts tent, we stuck it out until the late afternoon, finishing it off with another beverage in the village pub. We then headed back to the Posselwhite mansion to carry on the party into the night! 
The next day, we ventured into Oxford town centre to have a wander. We started with a drink in the oldest pub in Oxford and then took our seats at the local Weatherspoons to tackle a cheeseburger and cheer on Murray in the Wimbledon final.
