We have been out for a long walk and lots of exploring today. It was a beautiful mild day and so we packed up a picnic and headed for the beach. On the way we walked through the seafront park where Hannah did some tree climbing and tree spotting,
then we went on to the Japanese Gardens where she made friends with a group of children playing there and had a brilliant time discovering all sorts of great hiding places for a game of 'hide and seek', made fairy houses with one of the other little girls, and played on the bridges and standing stones.
After a picnic lunch we left the children and went on to the beach. The tide was out so we were able to walk along the beach on the narrow strip of sand amongst the pebbles. Hannah collected some beautiful shells for her shell collection, and very excitedly followed a birds tracks in the sand along the beach.
We finally ended up in the Rock Gardens for another snack and some fish spotting in the pond there.
Last of all was hill rolling. We were waiting for Dean to pick us up when Hannah saw a hill perfect for rolling down, so she did, over and over again............
..........and she LOVED it!!!!
