Yesterday was the anniversary of my aunts birthday, so Hannah, my sister, my mum and i all went to Portchester Castle to take some flowers to the castle cemetary. It was a cold blustery day, and the castle was beautifully windswept and wild!
St Marys church is within the castle walls and is a lovely old traditional church with ancient Yew trees around it which make for exciting exploring!
After visiting the church, we went into the castle to go to the shop - we wanted to get a gift for some blog friends, and Hannah wanted to go over the moat across the drawbridge! After all the wet weather the moat was quite full, and together with the windy conditions the bridge was rather exciting (especially if you are six and wearing a hat that is threatening to take off at any minute lol)!!
It was so nice to be out again after such a long bout of illness since christmas, Hannah and i were very much in need of some fresh air and it was the perfect place to blow away the cobwebs :-)
