Day One of the Summer Holidays

The first day of the Summer Holidays was a fantastic start to our holidays. We decided to go to the park in the morning before coming back home to do some chores and play in the garden. It was a great start to the day with all of us using the short walk as a wake up to the beautiful summers day.

Because it was such a nice day we knew that we had to make the most of it and so we packed up a picnic and headed to the Blue Lagoon, a local man made lake. Although Top Ender and Big Boy have both been for walks around the lake in the past, they have never really seen the lake and they don't know the stories about it so we sat at the end watching Dragonflies dart about whilst I told them about the treasures of sunken cars, planes and a bus that await divers wanting to increase their skills.

It was a great way to spend a couple of hours, relaxing and chatting, eating food and trying to spot in the crystal clear water the submerged vehicles and we all caught the sun as well as had a giggle together. It really was peaceful, and just looking out over the lake trying to spot fish amongst the reeds made me remember the lazy layabout days that I had experienced as a child.

We decided to walk the long way home and whilst I was looking at the beautiful golden field and the babbling stream, Top Ender and Big Boy walked along the path a little further ahead of where I was standing.

It was when I looked back to the path and Top Ender and Big Boy that I saw this.
