A Happy Day At Pensthorpe in Norfolk.


My poor blog, it’s feeling very neglected at the moment.

It can’t be helped, sadly. I’ve been using all of my words (and time) to frantically try and finish my submission for the RNA New Writers’ Scheme before Freya finishes school for the summer on Tuesday.

To make up for lack of words, I’m sharing some pictures instead. We had a lovely day at Pensthorpe yesterday, including seeing their new Wetland Discovery area. It is always hard to convince Freya to leave the amazing play areas but even she couldn’t resist the beautiful flowers (and a butterfly or 50).

Spot the butterfly!

I hope you’re all keeping well.

I’ll be back!

We had yet another lovely day out at Pensthorpe Natural Park yesterday, aided by blue sky and sunshine – just what we all needed.

Along with Mark and Freya, my running buddy (pictured) came along too. It was her first visit and she really loved it. There are many great spots to just stop and sit for a while (I’ve shared more pics and a video on Instagram, if you’re interested).

Rain showers? Check.

Unseasonably high winds? Check.

Given the forecast yesterday you might think the best idea would have been to hide away indoors.

Not us.

My inlaws were visiting so we decided to head back to Pensthorpe Natural Park for some outdoor fun (minus the hour or so Freya enjoyed in the fabulous indoor play area).

Thankfully, although it was a bit breezy, the rain held off for the duration of our visit.

I was quite pleased with these shots . Apart from cropping, they are as I took them. I love his little face, if it is actually a face. As I was snapping, about two feet away from him, I could see him turning his head this way and that, almost like he was interested in what I was doing.

Here are a few more (I’ve posted some on Instagram too).

 Wishing you a lovely week.
