Hiking day!

Hiking day again! Some place new to explore.

a butterfly

Googs just runs ALL the time! It's going to be hell in the winter :P
There were posts along the way with different birds engraved on them.

checking out the view
I loved this place but it did make me a little tense with all the steep bits. I had a lot of rules for this walk :P

A fallen tree with a hole at the roots
inside the hole

Kiki found a fungus on the left side of the path.

The heather was so purple
one of those steep bits which made my heart go funny at picturing my kids falling off.
I still allowed them to crawl to the edge to look over, but they had to crawl :P
The younger two stood back a little

more holes

more fungus
Kiki found a butterfly

And the kids found some water
It was cold!
but it didn't stop them

A place to remember and revisit.

castle play with friends

We met a wonderful family beside a river a month or so ago. They were from further down south so we didn't think that we would ever see them again until we got a call saying that they were camping nearby and wanted to meet up! So we went with them to Castleton.

The kids all play so well together. In fact that played together for 6 hours until I had to drag them away to go home.

Let's hope that there will be more chance meetings :)
