Camping Weekend and Visiting Nunney Castle

We've just spend a fantastic weekend visiting my son George who lives in Frome.

We stayed in our motorhome Harvey J on a farm campsite nearby. The farmer owners were in the midst of lambing. 

We spent our weekend taking Spencer for walks including Heaven's Gate, Shear Water Lake and we also visited the spectacular Nunney Castle.

The weekend was rounded off very nicely with a delicious Sunday lunch.

Here's a few pics of our weekend:

Nunney Castle is set right in the middle of the village.

The castle was built in the 1370s by local knight, Sir John de la Mare.

The castle was besieged and damaged in 1645 by the Parliamentarians during the English Civil War.

November 2017

To make up for the lack of posts in recent months, I've decided to post some photos every now and again, starting with last month.

Country walk near Uley with Chris and my son Will, over from Australia for a few weeks.

Baby Ella in the cardigan my Mum knitted.

Family pizza night at our place.

Will visiting Nan and Granddad.

Huge mushrooms on the Common.

Ella in another of my Mum's knitted cardigans.

I knitted the headband, my Mum knitted the dress.

The same pattern knitted by myself.

A lovely meal and catch up with our friends Catherine and Pete and so lovely to meet baby Sky.

Sky was wearing the little dress I had made her...the family are dairy farmers hence the cows!

Great to attend my sister Clare's book Club.

Cuddle time with baby Ella.

 Thanks for popping by!
