It was still pretty rough outside so I didn’t think our first petanque match of the season would actually take place at Kailzie Gardens in the afternoon. Checking my emails I found that if the weather was not improved by 12 midday the meet would be postponed till next weekend.
Come midday and the rain had stopped, the wind had dropped somewhat so I presumed we’d be giving it a go. It’s only a couple of miles from Peebles down the back road, but the rain had saturated some of the fields and in parts water was pouring on to the road from either side. It was safe enough to drive through though.
We had a great afternoon of play, with many laughs and much banter, and finally the winners were announced – David, TommyO and the only Frenchman among us – Michel, who were presented with a small trophy.
Looking forward to next week!
Talk again soon.
