It is only twenty minutes away and having looked it up on the internet it sounded ideal for the two older girls and for little Lacey Mae and it was just a perfect afternoon.
Dug out the picnic basket, filled it with sausage rolls that Jennifer had made that morning, a couple of rounds of sandwiches, crisps, cheese (forgot the olives for Shannon and me) fresh fruit and drinks and of course the inevitable chocolate bars, which we didn't get around to eating! and you'll be pleased to know I didn't take that many photographs!
