Family Fun at Center Parcs with a High Wire Tree Trek

LIFE - 9th-15th April 2018

Monday to Friday
Off to Center Parcs in Whinfell Forest, Cumbria with G. and Nh.  - they love it there.

Arrived  early to enjoy as much as possible of the first day - and even better the sun came out and whilst G and Nh headed off to book activities, N. and I enjoyed a picnic lunch sitting outside. enjoying the rare warmth of the weather.  Just as well l as we were back to normal the rest of the week, with solid  grey skies - not that it stopped us.    

N . and I contented ourselves with some gentle walks - it is possible to get away from the crowds - and just had a relaxing time. 

Looking across the lake to the Swimming Paradise Centre 

 One of the man animal carvings to be found around the centre.

In contrast, G and Nh never stopped  - rock wall climbing, cycling, boating, pottery painting, lots of sessions in the Swimming Paradise and the highlight had to be on our last day when  Nh.  was brave enough at 9 years old  to tackle the high wire tree trekking - along with an instructor!  She just didn't seem to have the fear factor!  We were the nervous ones down on the ground.  

  Yes - she is that little figure high up among the trees.

An evening view

Friday - Sunday
Returned to Earlston after a lovely family break together - and it is amazing how after such a short time away, home looks so welcoming - with even the garden beginning to flower. 

A return to the domestic scene of washing, ironing  and tidying up - plus putting all our photographs on the computer.  We have had two fine days, so I set to and put fresh wood stain on our garden trellis and back gate - a question of seizing the day when I was not doing much else.   Relaxed in the evening by watching the foot tapping musical  "42nd Street".  

The end to a good week - and even Spring has come at last.
