Saturday ,after a huge breakfast,we went to Warwick Castle.We were a bit disappointed that it seemed to be run more as a theme park than as an historic venue.You had to pay extra to go in the Merlin Tower,£3.60 each even for the children.The Princess Tower was free and the girls loved that.
There was a birds of prey display.This was a sea eagle(?).
Our son with four of our five grandchildren.Maps being consulted.
Finlay having a go at archery.He was actually very impressive and hit the target every time.
One last photo of the birthday girl.This was an ordeal for the waitress who it turned out was frightened of fireworks and suchlike!
This has been a superb,brilliant weekend.I love having all the family together.We started off as two and now we are 11.
Looks like you all had a fantastic time, (as always)ReplyDelete
I empathise with the rib, its agony and it took ages for mine to recover
What a lovely time! thanks for giving us a peep of it.ReplyDelete
I agree with you not liking historical places that have become more like theme parks. Of course they will change over time, and you can't expect them to be like they were 500 years ago but it takes all the texture out of them to be part of an entertainment group.
"We started off as two and now we are 11" that is one of the most beautiful statements I've read, such a happy thoughtReplyDelete
