Own Thy Wobble > Stokes Bay with Hampshire crew

Posted 31 July 2009

It's been a busy few weeks. Our house buying adventure is nearing the end (oops... should I touch wood now?) and we're seriously starting to clear out random crap we've accumulated over the years. It doesn't leave much space for flying, but I wasn't going to miss meeting up with the guys (and Tine!) at Stokes Bay on Sunday. As ever...
