Uppark House Cafe, Fuji Pro 800Z

We spent another day doing nice things – this time we visited Uppark, and English country house, a National Trust property with a lovely cafe serving cream teas with a huge lawn overlooking the South Downs. Unfortunately is was a bit chilly and it started to rain so we couldn’t sit outside on the lawn – next time.

Southsea, Fuji Pro 800Z

One of our last days in England – lovely weather and a little trip to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

The first roll of a batch of Fuji Pro 800Z I found on taobao. Great find and it expired only in 2012. Not sure how it’s been stored – judging by these frames, not particularly well but I’m sure it will be ok in the right conditions. It’s just figuring out what those conditions might be before I run out of the stuff…

Hambledon Vineyard, Fuji Provia 100F

We visited Hambledon Vineyard, makers of some of the World’s best sparkling wine.

We had a taste of the Classic Cuvee (Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Meunier 31% and Pinot Noir 29%) – a vibrant nose, quite fragrant with notes of apple and some elderflower. I found the palate quite creamy, again notes of apple and some pear, quite crisp as well. Acidity was very well balanced. A really superb sparkling wine, as good as any champagne I’ve tasted (and I’ve tasted quite a few) and much better than most.

I’ll buy a bottle next time I go home to Clanfield. We’re lucky to have this beautiful spot on out doorstep.

Some colour shifts with this Fuji Provia.
