Snettisham Park Farm
Today was the last day of Harry's school Summer holidays, tomorrow he will start a new term in a new class and leave me for six hours daily, five days a week...AGAIN!
I shall miss his company and our long days together.
To make the most of our final day we headed towards the Norfolk coast to visit Snettisham Park Farm where we fed pigs, lambs, ponies, chickens and goats.
Park farm has a lovely personal feel about it, scattered with numerous old stone barns, sheds with rickety wooden doors and apple trees dressed in dappled sunlight. Chickens and ducks roam freely around your feet and cockerels perch on old machinery filling the air with their authority.
It was a blustery day, so we opted out of the lengthy deer safari, a long open trailer pulled by a tractor, but we did walk to the first enclosure to witness them from a distance.
A children's activity area complete with towers and roped walk ways offered Harry entertainment while I stopped for a latte and a quick sketch to remember our day by.
The large watercolour Moleskine I have been using to journal this years Summer break in is not full, I shall put it aside ready for Summer break 2009.
