- School half term and what a wash-out! Today was one of the better days, at least it stayed dry.
- Visit with DD and the grandchildren to Dyrham Park, National trust property just few miles north of Bath.
- Quote from NT Handbook: "There are more than 110 hectares (270 acres) of ancient parkland, where historic herd of 200 fallow deer roam freely and magnificent trees and breathtaking views abound."
The house dates to late 17th century, but we did not visit there today.
We just enjoyed a walk in the grounds,
a picnic at the end,
and a visit to the lovely National Trust shop to buy some plants.
Oh, and our lovely heron has a new friend, a birthday present from my children.
In case you are wondering, these metal sculptures came from a National Trust shop.
You can also buy them from their on-line shop.
Have a lovely weekend!
