We don't have a bucket list for family adventures but I do admit that we have a sort of wish list. Or at least I do personally. Fingal's Cave on the Isle of Staffa was added quite a few years back after I had seen a picture somewhere.

Like most children Reuben and Orla love running, climbing and exploring. So a day out that combines all three of these is perfect. A few months ago we had such a day out high above the village of Alderley Edge. The National Trust site has lots to see and do, along with tales of wizards and knights. Legend has it that a wizard (Merlin?) offered a local farmer gold and treasure in exchange for his horse.
We enjoyed a family day out at Marsden beach on Saturday (19th March). The weather was unusually pleasant for this time of year and Ben was even brave enough to dip in the North Sea (Mammy, Daddy and Alex weren’t quite as brave).
The Davies family headed to Gloucestershire at the weekend as Colette was doing some green woodworking and willow weaving. We dropped her off and then headed out to explore the locality.
Earlier in the year we managed a trip to one of the more unique stretches of Gower coastline – the ‘Culver Hole’ near Port Eynon. Port Eynon beach itself is one of our current favourites – a huge stretch of sand, dotted with rockpools and backed by dunes – perfect for some of our kite flying trips!
We like snow, which is a good thing, because it snows a lot in Switzerland. But it's been a few months since we have seen snow, so today we decided to take a family adventure to find some snow in the middle of Summer.
We had an amazing day and a half on Kerrera, the small island just off Oban on the Scottish West Coast. Staying with pals who run a farm there we were out on the hill, feeding sheep, cows and ponies on the quad bikes. Eassan came prepared ... at 3 he already has his "adventure bag" ready packed with bino's, walkie talkies and magnifying glass.
You may think that Hobbits are all about the Rings. We know differently, though. They have an entirely different kind of treasure and they hide it deep in their Hobbit Holes!
Through my blog posts, I’ve taken you to some of my favourite spots on the Moray Firth coast. But where is my favourite spot on the whole coastline? Where do I love like nowhere else?
We took a trip to Kuala Lumpur recently when Daddy had to go there with work. It's amazing how adaptable children can be! The children, with blonde hair and blue eyes were the constant centre of attention but they took it in their stride giving everyone lots of smiles.
Last year I took my daughter Ella (9) on a caving trip in the Yorkshire Dales. Every year a local caving club sets up a winch for the public which lowers you 350ft down a very scary looking hole and into a enormous cavern which would easily fit York Minster or St Pauls Cathedral inside it.
