Because we went over Easter we drove down on Easter Sunday and stayed at the Kitley Hotel near Portsmouth overnight.
The following day, because we didn't know the system at the hotel, we visited Dartmoor zoo
, the National Aquarium in Portsmouth
went and parked on Dartmoor where we were accosted by ponies wanting to be fed. Maddy gave them an apple and got asked not to by the park wardens!
We popped into Lyde Castle as the final visit before we got to the hotel
At the hotel we spent our time making pottery, swimming, eating, archery, falconry, glass painting, card making, jewelry making and wood cutting. Amazing!
Geoff and I managed 2 walks on the moors as well. The weather on the first walk was very mixed, sun, hail, snow, rain, we got them all :).Wringing out the gloves!
The weather for the second walk was much better, hence the extra pictures. From the top we could could see from the English Channel to the Irish Sea and on the way down we went past bronze age homes and burial site.
