Today we woke up and it was raining...in England. Unbelievable!
Anyway, we had breakfast and then Mum made us do some homework. So boring!
Once we got that finished it was time to jump into the cars and head to Slapton for lunch. It took us about 30 mins to get there, along high hedge roads down to the sea. It was very pretty.
Slapton is a village in Devon, England. It is located near the A379 road ...
We were up early and looking for an iPad but couldn't find one. Luckily Catherine got up not long after and made us breakfast. Eventually Dad joined us and later Mum and Phil got up.
Phil was ringing the bells at the Church next door so we went and watched. It looked easy. I wanted to have a go but apparently you need to practise how to do it.
After that we went home and Phil made us bacon and eggs for everyone, so we had a second breakfast.
When we were ...
... with a bailey inside and was made out of shale. It was built in the 12th century on a hill overlooking the River Fowey. It had a double set of entrance gates and what looks like a dry moat. This castle bounced around in ownership during the 12th century and the only notable owner was The Black Prince Edward III. He used the castle between 1354 and 1356 to gather his feudal lords so they could show their allegiance ...
... looks like Grammy and made us a second lunch. After that we went and did some art in Catherine's awesome art room. I want one just like it.
We were still doing art when Phil came home. We said hello and let the adults talk.
At about 5:30pm Dad and Phil went to the pub for a few pints whilst the girls got the dinner sorted. We had our dinner early and then went to bed. It had been a big day.
The adults stayed up and had dinner and few bottles of red ...
... I think the trip would have been a bit of an anti-climax, as I would have been a bit fed up with my own company after a few weeks! Although I did have lots of casual socialising with people on many of the smaller campsites, the trip didn't really involve me in doing much with other people at all, so these two special visits made everything else great too.
So now back in Plymouth and making Sue very jealous ...
