Despite a mixed weather forecast the weather held up and turned out to be an amazingly sunny day - we even got sunburnt.

On Saturday night Esther, the 3 kids and I stopped over at a great little B&B in Poole, going ouyt in the evening for food & drinks [not that we needed much more food after the complementary and amazing Carluccio's Alfreso Classic Picnic in Cool bag [Adults] & Carluccio's Picnic boxes [Chldren]

Then on Sunday 12 MAY we attended…
2nd 'Simply French' gathering of French cars of all shapes & sizes @ Beaulieu Motor Museum, nr Brockenhurst, Hampshire, SO42 7ZN www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu-events

Event featured a display of French cars of all shapes & sizes and later, a cavalcade in the main arena area of 20 cars chosen from all rally entrants with one car was selected as winner of the People's Choice Award.
The competition was open to all owners of French cars taking part in the rally & took place at approx. 2.45pm
This year’s show was sponsored by Citroën UK, who displayed a selection of their latest models in a bourgeois café scene serving complementary coffee, hot chocolate, Pain au Chocolate, croissants and ‘Citroen Fairy Cakes, in the parkland, complimented by traditional French music.
Admission / Vehicle entry included entry into the whole Beaulieu attraction.

The weather wesn’t quite as good as on Saturday with, again contrary to the forecast, but was a nice but sometimes overcast day. The rain held off until just after the awards.
