A long cry from

"This little pig went to market ..."

... and in this case, it seems none stayed at home...

 

Andrew and his crew, face a few greater challenges than most,

Le Grand Arrivée

taxi arriving

So who can afford to come by Taxi to the Country Craft Market?

 

 

They seems to be having some difficulty disembarking,

but all arrive safely

and spread their legs (those that have legs)

on the soft lawns - although it seems a few are overly tired from the journey
