Saville Gardens

We had planned to take Orla to a treasure hunt today, but seeing as I didn't read the whole advert, and therefore didn't book tickets in advance, that fell through! Orla's mum suggested the Gingerbread Trail at Saville Gardens so we went there instead. Turns out in December admission is free (not for the trail, but general admission) and it's obvious to see why. There are no leaves, flowers, buds, not much wildlife, but you know, it was still beautiful and refreshing.

The youngsters, Orla and a fosterling enjoyed the trail - it wasn't difficult but still took about one and a half hours. At the end they got a gingerbread man for completing it.

One of the highlights of the day was seeing a duck being chased back into a stream by a bigger bird, and then said big bird strutting off! So wish I had filmed it, it was comical!

The lead trough caught my eye - I think the sometimes photographer in me loved the way the plain grey lead stood out against the red bricks. And it's dated from 1752!

We then went to Pizza Hut and finally ended up back at ours playing a board game. As always a lovely day with the God-daughter :)
