This bank holiday just gone we took ourselves for a picnic. We like to picnic as often as we can throughout the year. We have a little tradition, we go to the shops, buy fresh bread, cured meat, olives, salad, cheese and something nice to drink and then we head out on the road. We usually go to a National Trust location because we are members. On this occasion we visited somewhere new. Westbury Court Garden in Gloucestershire.
The journey there was very pleasant. We came off the motorway and travelled over the old Seven Bridge. Something Ethan always enjoys. We drove through some lovely towns and villages and enjoyed seeing sheep at the sides of the road.
The gardens themselves were very pretty. As National Trust properties go, it's one of the smaller locations. There is no house, there are few facilities, just a loo. It was perfect for us though - lots of space for the boys to run around in and explore and lovely picnic areas.
We found a spot and settled down to eat. Felix spent most of his time romping around. Ethan managed to get sheep poo on his foot. Nice!
After our picnic we strolled around the grounds. It was lovely being able to let Felix go off a little now he's starting to walk.
There were quite a few long grass areas which Ethan enjoyed running through and Felix enjoyed batting with his hands and shouting at.
A lovely peaceful way to spend our afternoon!
