It must have been tough for the marathon runners having to run past this little oasis of shade, food and drink so early in the run. Well done to all of them for hanging in there. Meanwhile everyone at the farmers and restaurant market enjoyed a relaxed day in the sun with lots of local goodies on offer and either tables or a nice expanse of grass to sit and eat a leisurely repast on. For the more energetically inclined their were dancing lessons, and the face painters did a roaring trade for both children and adults.
