The weather last weekend was lovely wasn’t it. I’d been at Blog On Win all day on Saturday and Monkey had spent most of the day helping Daddy P with work jobs. We all needed to dust off the cobwebs on Sunday. We had planned to visit the Banbury Canal Day, which is always a great day out. But Monkey had other ideas, he wanted to spend time revisiting an old friend. So off we went in the opposite direction and headed to Stowe Landscape Gardens. Monkey loves the fact that this was the first place he really visited, his first visit was Boxing Day 2009, when he was 16 days old, bless him.
Since that day we’ve been regular visitors to Stowe Landscape Gardens, we live fairly close by, and every visit is slightly different. Monkey is always in charge of the route these days, which lake to walk around, in which direction.
Of course our visits invariably require Monkey to find just the right stick to accompany him on his latest adventure.
We never tire of the views, whether it be of the lakes …….
Running across bridges ……
or looking out for wildlife.
It’s a place for deep conversations.
A place to take a break and enjoy the view.
Somewhere to play hide and seek.
When the adventures have ended for the day there’s always time to make a little noise before heading home.
Stowe Landscape Gardens really does feel like revisiting an old friend. I know we’ll be back again soon.
