Enough waffle - let's go have an adventure:
|As soon as we arrived it was time for the picnic - not exactly lashings of ginger beer but at least it meant that I didn't have so much to carry. We found a perfect spot near a huge fallen tree - a flat spot for the rug and a tree to sit on.|
|For some reason four of us needed to take our wellies off *ahem* but at least they didn't spoil the view.|
|Luckily it was deemed sensible to put wellies back on before going for a paddle in what looked like a miniature ford.|
|Look who is 'King of the Castle' ..|
|There were hundreds of natural fairy doors and the two youngest girls had lots of fun 'releasing fairies' into the doors.|
|Whilst the younger ones were releasing fairies the older ones were practising their balancing skills.|
|And the oldest one (me) appreciated the scenery like the beautiful and mysterious middle lake|
|and the reflection of the Kingcups on the water.|
|Bigger Miss struck out on a limb over the water in search of the ducks.|
|The ducks however were all gathered together for a quack on a nearby branch.|
|Not only were the tree roots made for climbing they also made brilliant caves.|
|I got a bit bored and started taking pictures of our beautiful surroundings.|
|We very nearly turned round and went home after the climbing but something made us go on and we stumbled on this Wishing Well which all four girls were fascinated by.|
|Just down from the well was a beautiful babbling stream - perfect for paddling.|
|We found a perfect bridge for a game of Pooh Sticks before turning for home.|
|Little Miss found a tree with a face and big chubby cheeks - can you see it?|
|True to form I was often to be found taking pictures of the flowers and leaves.|
|The final delight was spotting a little family of fluffy ducklings, complete with mum and dad.|
I literally had to drag the girls home - we had spent 3 hours exploring and we are already planning our next visit. What an adventure!
