I mentioned in my previous post that we were slightly behind schedule when we went swimming with the ducks. Much to Ashley’s disgust, I love to have an itinerary on a city-break type of holiday. Otherwise, with Ashley’s laid-back approach to life, in combination with the Little Trekkers’ ability to get side-tracked with a million often insignificant distractions, we’d never get anything done.

About six months ago, when it was still winter, James and I took part in a sponsored hill walk. If I’m honest, I don’t normally go in for this sort of thing as I prefer the hills to myself, but it was in a beautiful landscape, James was keen, and it was for a good cause.
Having completed our tidal homework the previous evening, we were ready to hit the fossil-collecting grounds for our second day on the Jurassic Coast.
This summer we holidayed in Westray yet again. And it won’t be our last visit – we still found lots of things to do that we’d not done previously. For example, this year we finally managed to do the Noup Head Walk in the far north-west of the island.
In early March, we were really excited when we had the opportunity to spend a weekend in our old stomping ground of North Yorkshire. The big dilemma was to decide which of our many favourite haunts we would visit – there were so many great places that we knew it would be a hard choice.
We spent the first few days of the Christmas holidays getting very wet and windblown, and so when, one evening, we checked the forecast and saw that the next two days would be much better, we wanted to make the most of it. We’d often talked about taking the boys to Lyme Regis to look for fossils and here was the perfect off-season opportunity.
Judging by how many of us come here, I think the Natural History Museum should be the unofficial Little Trekkers’ Ambassadors HQ. It was one of many “must sees” on our recent trip to the capital and the dinosaur section was first on our list.
One day last Easter, when the weather really was too bad to contemplate doing anything outdoors with small children, we took them to a climbing wall for the first time. (See ‘Reach for the Sky’ link below)
We had a brilliant final week of the school summer holidays – we finally got to visit Shetland! We had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to tell you all about it over my next few blog posts
