The October half term is well under way and we started our week by driving over 200 miles to get to the Canonteign Falls which is the England’s highest drop waterfall. Driving down the motorway was a nightmare as there were so many road works everywhere. Mr K asked why we don’t invent a teleport. How I wish I could! By the time we got to the Falls, they were closed as winter is approaching and it gets dark earlier. So we went back the very next day early in the morning.
Recently, I wrote a local guide for Lichfield for tots100 – if you have not seen it, click here. Barton Marina is one of the places I mentioned. It is a unique Trent & Mersey canal-side attraction with fantastic cafés and restaurants, shopping and fabulous walks around the beautiful lakes and woodlands. We love to take our children there for a bike ride around the lakes and to eat ice cream.
Yesterday, we had our photo shoot to update our blog photo with our regular photographer – Susannah Conway Photography. I am so excited that I can’t wait to update it soon! After that, we drove down to Barton Marina for Thai food! It had been a long time since we last ate Thai food! They had a buffet menu and there was a good selection of foods. It was very delicious and I would recommend going again.
