Friends already and twice the fun ...

Today, clear sky and warm weather and a wonderful gang to explore with.

Flora turned up this morning and not long after Matilda came bouncing in. While I expected a meeting of firsts, turns out they are already friends and were in total delight to be seeing each other.

Mika and Eden were our 'twice the fun' crew.  Siblings and twins and very gorgeous little children.  Eden very gentle and curious about all the animals and very patient in getting to know them or make contact.  Mika, shy and sweet and deep with a quirky sense of humour that came out to play too.

Omkara made the final crew member and he took a while to get over being 'dim-sa-pointed' that Finn and Harvey weren't along for the day.  Only one more sleep and they will be Omkara!

We spent an age with the guinea pigs, this was the ice breaker for Mika and Eden.  They spent a good 20 minutes sitting and patting and feeding and chatting to their little furry friends.  Now 20 minutes is a long patient time and it was only because a lot of other very noisy people came into the guinea pig house that they'd let themselves leave.

Cow milking was a big hit, and so was our time down the back in the 'Witches Garden', our little sanctuary all green and magical tucked way down the back that no one ever really visits but us.

We picnicked twice and that was fun. We walked for miles, visited the baby pigs, saw the sheep, climbed the Peppercorn tree, watched the workmen digging for a while, chased some pigeons, watched the peacock and played, 'What's the time Mr. Wolf?'

All in all, huge fun was had by all.
