I haven't felt like this since VE Day. At noon we watched in the garden as the Red Devils jumped - as if they were going to land in the garden. I stood on the picnic table - camera in hand with MTL grabbing my ankles. As always happens when I get excited my camera jammed so I just wallowed in the spectacle.
The Red Arrows were due at 3.30pm and I can't find the words to describe what I felt. It couldn't have been more emotional if they had been my kin. They plummetted and swooped - sometimes gone before one could find them but the display was generous and if anyone in Minehead didn't see them they must have been asleep. By then I had jettisoned the camera and it was a bit heart breaking - especially when they made a heart and then an arrow piercing it. Thankfully I had down loaded the photos but nothing beats the live performance.
Red Arrows and Red Devils I salute you.
