A Visit To The Tank Museum In Bovington

MAIN ATTRACTION...

Visiting London has a reason, not mine, of course... my BIL's main itinerary is to go to Bovington, a couple of hours from London.  On the second day early morning, we rented a car and drove to The Tank Museum, based in Bovington.  This town is the main training centre for tanks during the First World War and the tanks were returned to the fields around the current museum at the end of the war.  And how did I know?  Well, I got this information from the The Tank Musuem online though my BIL has told us briefly about it before we went.

Admission was 14 pounds sterling per person and the four of us went in regardless.  I know we would be spending many hours inside so I don't think I wanted to stay outside lingering around.  Aaron was all keen for this though we two ladies would rather go shopping anytime!  LOL... Well, anyway, just follow the leader and it was indeed an eye opener for me, at least.  It was tiring though.... three of us walked and rested at certain spots... the one who was most interested, did not even complained tired at all!! 
Upon reaching and at the grounds before entering... 
The memorial statue... 
Introducing the Tank Museum... 
Buying tickets for admissions... 
And here is the entrance leading in... 
Miniature tanks on display and for sale, I think... 
Two ex-military men were there... 
They assembled these tanks from scratch... 
It is sort of their hobby and interest.... 
And here goes the tanks... 
Take some minutes to study each tank... 
While I rested my poor legs.... 


Panoramic view... 
A very tankful day for the four of us... 
We spent the whole afternoon inside the museum... 
And only left half an hour before it closed for the day...

  1. You got great pictures! I love your panorama. I know nothing about this, and I bet you didn't either. So we both learned something.

  4. I love your first photo. So creative to point that direction.
    I think I would enjoy war in museums like this as they are educational. The most shocking war museums that I ever visited and never stopped talking are the 2 atomic museums in Japan!!! Half baked truths being displayed.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
