We got up early and had tea, toast and orange juice for breakfast before setting out for Leeds Castle with my Brother in Law and family. The day was lovely and sunny, but a little windy making the air quite bracing in exposed places.



We walked through the parkland towards the castle in glorious sunshine, spring flowers lining the grassy lawns with ducks and geese preening themselves in the sunny glow. We enjoyed a tour of the castle before stopping off for lunch time refreshments in the cafe. I enjoyed a little bit of cake indulgence;  ginger and marmalade cake. It was delicious ;-)

After lunch Mr C and I failed miserably to find the centre of the maze before time ran out and we had to get back to the ranch for nephews and nieces to do their homework before they needed to depart for a birthday celebration. This left us to have a board gaming afternoon, followed by an early dinner to accommodate two young boys.


After the boys had gone to bed, we retired to the sitting room to watch a film and the cheese board came out…

    an enjoyable day by your account of it, CP. i liked the shots, especially the one with the blossoms framing the view out over the water.

    Just what I’d call living the Life of Riley, Cherry. :)

  3. Leeds Castle looks very lovely – beautiful pictures. I could easily dip into that cheeseboard (and wine!!) :)

  4. Oh is the aviary still there?
    I miss the birds there.

    Oh yes, and the black swans!
