Owls, Chilli and Cheese, in Winchester

August 24, 2016

Last weekend was such a hit and miss weekend in terms of weather, but we still made the most of the outdoors. After visiting family, we popped over to the Chilli and Cheese Festival in Winchester

We went last year and really enjoyed it, and bought way too much cheese and chilli sauce.

Again this year the weekend was tailored for food lovers and families a like. We’re so looking forward to this event when Henry is up and walking, so next year’s should be a blast. 

We only managed an hour as Henry was getting restless towards the end, but we snagged a couple of great chilli sauces for our ever-growing collection, and of course stopped by the owl and falconry stand. I just can’t pass up an opportunity to hold an owl, and Bertie the Eurasian Eagle Owl was too gorgeous to pass up on. He’s one pretty heavy lad, but so soft and friendly – and those eyes!! He might look evil but he’s a gentle giant. Also did you know that owls actually don’t have that amazing eyesight?! They can see long distance amazingly well, but their close-up vision is terrible. 

^^ We picked up a new scotch bonnet based chilli sauce from the guys at the Wiltshire Chilli Farm who are our absolute favourites! ^^
