My good friend Rosy and I shared a River Cottage Vegetarian Cooking Course Adventure at the Famous River Cottage. The day was just wonderful. River Cottage runs a number of courses, including cooking days, foraging on the coast for edible seaweeds and beekeeping.
We arrived at 9 am and parked at the top of the hill ready for a tractor ride to the cottage.
We were directed to a gorgeous converted barn to the cooking school
The Wondrous Rosy
We got a great position at the front of the room…..
Our breakfast…….. home-made sour dough eggy bread with River Cottage honey
Our wonderful, enthusiastic and gifted teacher Chef Andy.

Granted, this was not so much my adventure, but Husband-Gusto’s. But, what a magnificent day we had. He went paragliding with Butterfly Paragliding in Chale on the Isle of Wight. I sat in the glorious summer sun on the grass watching the scenery, seeing rabbits, buzzards and kites. Just wonderful.
