This post has been sitting in my drafts for nearly a month! Sorry it's late!
I wanted to show you what we got up to on the bank holiday weekend at the end of August. I spent it with James' family. Auntie Jules came down for the weekend as well, so the Sunday we decided to go & play foot golf. If you haven't heard of it, it's basically playing golf but with a football & you kick it into the hole. It was such a laugh. We played it in teams & drew second, so it wasn't too bad!
Bank holiday Monday in the UK this year was horrific. It rained the entire day.
We'd hired a canal boat to go along the river Wey (obviously we didn't predict the weather would be as bad as it was..) However, we made the most of it & wrapped up in water-proofs & fluffy jumpers for warmth.
Our little boat was adorable. It had a fully functioning kitchen, with a stove, sink & kettle. Perfect for us as we are a family who can't live without constant cups of tea!
As well as seeing a lot of beautiful countryside, we also managed to spot a bit of wildlife. There were hundreds of ducks but we also managed to get up close to this heron. He was so chilled on the river bank, he didn't even fly off when we got near him.
We stopped for lunch at a lovely little pub that did amazing food. We all shared the nachos as a starter & I had a jacket potato with salad for my main. We were all starving by the time we got to the pub, so it was a welcome addition to our stomachs.
After lunch we headed back down the river & home to dry off. Despite the rain, it was such a lovely day & one I'd love to do again.
Have you ever been on a canal boat? : )
