Climbing mountains

Today was the last day of our holiday so we headed for our favourite place -Bratton Camp and the White Horse. We had more lovely weather so Big Brother and Daddy flew their planes.


Then we walked over to the White Horse. We managed to tick off one of our #50things – Climb a huge hill.


Then it was back to Nanny’s to pack up and head home.

Nunney Castle

Little Sis demanded she visit a castle and we picked the beautiful Nunney Castle which we visited last year. It’s one of my favourite castles, small but beautiful.

DSC_3221This year we only found one small frog but lots of damsel flies floating over the moat.


We walked over to the little stream and decided it was perfect for a game of pooh sticks so we were able to tick Play pooh sticks from our list of #50things.


Like our trip last year we also visited wonderful Frome, admired the leat, and took a photograph next to the giant Playmobil figure outside the model shop.

Westbury White Horse

We went to see Nanny’s White Horse on the edge of Salisbury Plain. The weather was warm and sunny (although it doesn’t look like it in the photots) and the children were happy to sit and watch daddy fly his model plane for a while. There were some very brave hang gliders too and quite a large crown of people watching them.

The children really wanted to explore so we walked over to see the famous White Horse and watched some crazy children going down it on plastic bags. Then we carried on to Bratton Camp, a huge Iron Age hillfort. The sides were very steep but we had fun exploring, climbing up and down the sides of the fort and trying to dodge the sheep poo.

We finished off our trip with a well deserved ice-cream!
