Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Bit late posting this week but as I have explained in my Project 52 post - very busy and likely to be so for the next few weeks! Most of my pictures this week, although recent, come from our half term holiday trips out a couple of weeks ago. They are both National Trust properties as it happens. Avebury Manor which was a great place to go with the kids - an old house that has been done up in various period styles but where you can actually touch, sit, play and lie on the beds (not like most stately homes!) The kids loved it. The second place was Winkworth Arboretum where we had a fun afternoon exploring the woods in their autumn colours.

  1. These made me smile. I really like "whimsical" She looks like she is having fun! :)

  2. What a great idea! Most places everything is roped off and touching is not encouraged.
