Days 111-114 - a stopover in Tilstock
We've just spent 5 days in Tilstock, Shropshire - visiting Grandad Phil and Nain (pronounced nine) Elaine.
Samuel and Nathanael enjoyed investigating Grandad Phil's model trains and playing Settlers of Catan, and Myriam had a lovely morning bonding with Nain Elaine over Frozen!! (luckily Elaine was a drama teacher in a former life, so she's happy to sit down in front of a movie)...
|Den hunting in the nature reserve|
We enjoyed exploring the area, including a full day (oops, wasn't supposed to be that long) walk to a local nature reserve. We went through fields of horses, sheep, sweetcorn, and even a field of young bulls!! Not something we wanted to repeat in a hurry, so we found a different way home!
We also had a great day in Shrewsbury - we'd downloaded a whodunnit style trail that took us through the town finding all our clues. We won't spoil it for you (partly because we didn't get time to find out all the answers), but I can promise it was a lot of fun.
