The perfect birthday party as far as I am concerned….a gaggle of friends and family, a nice day and a huge expanse of natural beauty to explore!
Oh and then on our first stop the birthday girl (my Auntie Wendy) pulling out a huge birthday cake! What’s not to like?
We had a fantastic walk up on Dartmoor – a place of wide open views, rocky Tors, and fern lined streams.
Any large Tors were like red rags to a bull and the boys instantly scrambled up them – following James (cousin of some description) to perch on the top.
We even had a ruined medieval village to explore….
There are wild ponies (I can feel that song coming on again…) sheep and cattle here too so I have to admit borrowing the pun from signs around that urge you to take ‘moor care” when driving.
A game of ‘pooh sticks’ at lunchtime got very competitive when James started to modify his stick with a pocket knife!
Such a treat to be here for family get togethers.
