My last post on our trip to Whitby will be much shorted than I anticipated. I had planned a visit to the Dinosaur and Fossil Museum in Robin Hood’s Bay, then a walk across the clifftops to Boggle Hole and back again along the beach. However, waking up for our last, fun filled day, I found myself pretty poorly, so the walk was out of the question.
After a busy first day and despite our late night, we managed to wake in plenty of time for a lovely cooked breakfast to set us up for the day. As promised the night before, we strolled back down to the harbour to find the pirate ship to start the day with another boat ride (this was to become a theme).
I seem to have been so busy recently I’m just finding the time now to sit down and write about out walk in Betws-y-Coed during our recent long weekend in North Wales. The forecast for the day was sunshine and rain showers, so we decided to go for a stroll alongside the river, Afon Llugwy, at Betws-y-Coed. Having visited before, we know that parts of the walk were in woodland, so if it rained, we would be afforded a bit a shelter.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided that the walk I had planned for our adventure day wasn’t suitable for me looking after Rowan and the furry woofers on my own (too much on a country road with no pavement). Turned out we were both pretty tired too, so we stayed local and visited Dunham Park.
This is the last of my posts about our holiday in Cornwall, but I couldn’t leave out the beautiful little cove at the bottom of the road where we were staying in St Agnes.
We found ourselves here a number of evenings and one drizzly afternoon. The cove itself is surrounded by high cliffs, at the top of which is the South West Coastal Path, but for each visit, we satisfied ourselves with exploring what the beach had to offer.
So this post is a bit different to previous ones, but we had too good a day to leave it out. My previous posts have been about some of our adventures in the countryside but the common theme is getting outside. Last weekend we spent the afternoon getting outside, exploring Phillips Park and its new inhabitants – the dinosaurs!!!
On the Saturday before Mother’s Day we opted to do something a bit different to our usual wandering about in the countryside and visited Brockholes, a relatively young nature reserve in Lancashire. Brockholes, which is built on a former quarry, opened its doors to the public in April 2011. It features lakes, wetlands and woodlands, all designed to attract a number of different species of wildlife to the site, to make it their home. Continue reading
