    October 8, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Learnt a bit about the castle, went inside and checked out the grounds. Found a fantastic kitchen garden. We spent ages in here, sampling some of the fruits, playing in the maze and just waking around. Just beautiful. We then walked back into town, passed an old Abbey, checked out (and some old gravestones). Had lunch in a nice pub, then home where Hilary started dinner, using her rosemary from the castle garden.Read more

For everyone else, the race was on. Jess and Caitlin got pretty butterfly helmets! Vince ended up overall winner, just edging out Paul.

    Villers-Bretonneux to cousins

    October 4, 2017 in France ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Visited the war memorial. The village of Villers Bretonneux has a special relationship with Australia through war. The Australians fought to capture many of the towns, bridges, important vantage points all over this area of Northern France. Very moving, especially seeing graves of soldiers who were only in their teens.
    Then on up to cuddles with Willem and Annabelle xx
