The word today is 'Light', well I've added an 'a' in the front of it for my interpretation of it, as you can see in the last 3 photographs.
On Sunday, Kerry and I took the kids to Archaeolink, which is a history/archaeology-themed park.
Every year, on the last Sunday in October, there is the burning of the Wickerman, as a symbol of the end of summer and the passage into winter. This is the third year I've been at it and the fourth year for Kerry and the kids.
Here is what he looked like when we arrived ...
... and as we walked around ....
There is always a Fancy Dress competition for the children and this is the first year that my grandkids have taken part. Cameron was a mad surgeon, Kali was the Corpse Bride, Aaliyah was Wednesday Addams and Saffron was little witch!
Cameron was Runner-up and he received a free Wickerman T-shirt!
We met the Green Man too ...
Then we had sparklers!
As usual, it was bitterly cold and windy, but the skies were clear and as it grew dark, the heavens were filled with stars.
Perfect weather for a burning ......
We were all chilled to the bone by the time we got back to the car, but it was worth it. This year's burning was the best so far!
