Pink party and other adventures

Some photos from Michelle's birthday celebrations in Weymouth at the weekend, with an overwhelmingly 'pink' theme. Starting with food and drinks in the Hogshead it became a pub/club crawl around the usual Weymouth haunts and we managed by and large to stay upright. Another enjoyable evening, even if the theme was not taken as seriously by some as by others!

It was nice to have a break in Dorset to get away from the house for a while. On Sunday we set off early to the Weymouth Antiques and Collectors fair (not very good), and visited another one in Osmington before heading out to the woods with Moss for another long walk in the rain! On the drive back up we stopped off in Worcester of all places to go to the cinema to see The DaVinci Code. Which wasn't a bad film on the whole, I think it gets about 7 out of 10. It was nicely photographed but the plot was quite obvious really, even to those of us who haven't read the book.
