Bosham Church Fete

On Saturday, Keren and I were unsure how to spend our last afternoon together in England. We decided on Bosham Church Fete, and if I was in pursuit of a quintessentially English experience to take home and treasure in weeks to come, I was not disappointed. I thought fetes like this occurred only in BBC period dramas, or on the pages of Country Living. I was wrong. Tea, jam, books, plants, large straw hats, long floral skirts, ice cream, Pimms, Oxford shirts, boat shoes and an octogenarian band; it was all I could do not to gape openly at the scene before me. I had high hopes (when making the commitment) that there would be bunting. I needn’t have worried.
