Sunshine and bike riding
So what have we been doing. We've enjoyed that we had some rain to water the plants and refill the water butts - one less big job to do, although it's now hot and dry again so I will be watering them later.
The grandparents have been staying not too far away in the New Forest for a few days in their caravan so we went to visit them on Saturday. They were staying at one of those well equipped sites (my Mom does comfort caravan parks!). On arrival we played for a while with various things and then went for lunch in the restaurant. Imogen rode her bike to lunch.
After lunch we went to the play park which was nice and had a go on the "crazy" golf. Alex and I have a bit of a thing about crazy golf no longer being that crazy. I remember the days as a child when crazy golf was crazy and difficult, not saying it's easy now but whoever designs them just doesn't put any effort into it any more. There is one exception to this that we have seen but not yet had a go at over in Northern Ireland - next time we are over there visiting family or on holiday we will go and try it out. It looks really good fun, you may get squirted with water on your way aroundd, it looks well designed and maintained; and even has a pirate ship in the middle. It's here if you're interested.
Time for an ice cream and then a ride on the bike back to the caravan for coffee and relaxation and more playing with hoops, velcro catch ball, tennis, frisby and lots more bike riding. It turned into a really hot afternoon which I wasn't expecting and we'd all forgotten to bring Imogen a hat, so I made a makeshift one with a clean hanky - how very British! I'd also not got the suncream (not like me) but my Mom had some I used on Imogen as it was hot.
