On Friday night we had an overnight guest for a special adventure. Summer came for tea and ate a good helping of spaghetti bolognese and a yoghurt pudding.
After an explore off the boat to visit the cows, pick some flowers, feed the ducks and the swans and a game of hide and seek, she eventually went to bed.
Sleeping in Nanny’s bed for the first time on the boat, while Grandad opted for the camp bed, was so exciting and it took a while to drop off.
On Saturday we were awake quite early and after breakfast we got a special request to visit the ice-cream farm. Having visited before on foot and by car, we decided to travel there by boat today.
