Bluebells at Pamphill, Dorset

Bluebell Wood

Last year we visited Bluebell Wood at Pamphill to see the carpet of bluebells for the first time. It was there I took one of my favourite photographs of Eliza, so I was keen to go back this year to see if we could get some more photo’s of the kids. Bluebell Wood is set on the Kingston Lacy estate in Dorset and we parked at Pamphill Green and took the short walk down a country path to the wood,… Continue Reading “Bluebells at Pamphill, Dorset”

Living Life Through Adventure with Hotter Shoes

PierZip

Towards the end of last year I did a walking tour of Bournemouth with Hotter Shoes where I learned interesting facts all about my home town and saw things that I have walked past on an almost daily basis and never noticed.

Easter Egg Hunting at Clouds Hill, home of T.E Lawrence

There has been one local National Trust property that I have been wanting to visit for some time, but we never seem to have got there – Cloud’s Hill in Bovington. Cloud’s House was once home to T.E Lawrence a British scholar, writer and soldier who mobilised the Arab Revolt in World War One and became famous as ‘Lawrence of Arabia’. The cottage itself is very easy to find as is close to the Tank Museum. I think holding a Cadbury’s Egg… Continue Reading “Easter Egg Hunting at Clouds Hill, home of T.E Lawrence”

Trying the new Gruffalo River Ride at Chessington

The Gruffalo is one of our favourite children’s books of all time and we really enjoy taking part in activities that are related to the story. Last month we were one of the first to try the new Augmented Reality Trail at Moors Valley which was packed full of fun facts about forest animals and the chance to make the Gruffalo come to life on your mobile phone or tablet which Sebastian adored. Not long after doing the trail we saw an… Continue Reading “Trying the new Gruffalo River Ride at Chessington”
