Yesterday I took them Orienteering at Stanwick Lakes and after purchasing the 'pack' ,which included a compass though I doubt it is impossible to get lost, we set out to find the first post on the map provided
and noticed this wonderful gnarled Willow tree
before arriving at the Iron Age house, which was a hit because of the mud outside!
|A little drafty to live here!|
and feet were beginning to drag so refreshment was taken before we went onto the Adventure trail.
The zip wire is always a great hit and it has been upgraded lately and zips along beautifully and easily.
There were flocks of Canada Geese flying around and, more unusually, a great many swans. I managed to get a quick shot in of these two flying over; we knew they were coming because of the noise the wings make in flight. One 'bevy' (swans in flight) had about 10 - 15 birds which I have never seen before.
Finally a quick paddle around the playground!!
Today was something quite different, but again at Stanwick Lakes.
Dr Who had arrived. This Dalek was scary because it suddenly started to move when there was no-one around and it was 'exterminating' everyone!
The Tardis was there and then the Doctors arrived and the children helped at the control panel
Ellie freaked out and refused to stay and so we had to go. Never mind they might come another day.
Mini Mania for March is complete though you are only going to get a sneaky peak -
The theme is Tessellations and we can only use three colours - blue, green and orange.
My Higham Piecemakers Christmas Challenge 2016 is also complete but I am not showing this until after our 'reveal' in April. Just three projects left to complete and all timebound!! Why do I put myself under such pressure?
