If you go down to the woods today ....

Han & Dan escaped last weekend to attend a family party, leaving Lynn and I with two little darlings to entertain.  So, if you go down to the woods today (last Saturday) be sure for a big surprise!  From blackberry picking and trail-blazing to den making and wild animal trapping (well, stroking dogs), these two explorers finally relaxed in Granddad's van with very dirty faces.  

Castle Drogo

Julia was back to school, well 6th form college today and with Lydia working, Lynn and I decided to enjoy the continuing sunshine and visit one of the National Trust's properties: Castle Drogo.  This castle was only build just over 100 years ago, but since day one has suffered from a leaking roof.  So, the NT are spending £11 million pounds on putting it right!  It is a very interesting building, built of local granite and the picture shows Lynn in the gardens.
