On Friday, as Ross went off to rehearse with his band, Grace and I decided to get out of the house and make the most of the weather. We drove through beautiful countryside to get to the lovely open space of Ferne Animal Sanctuary near Chard in Somerset.
Grace, armed with a pencil and map, and me, armed with my DSLR, spent a lovely couple of hours trekking round the sanctuary following the clues to form a final word to take to the craft room in order to collect Grace’s chocolate prize.
On the way round there were plenty of colourful sights and many of the animals were basking in the warm spring sunshine.
We stopped to share a cream tea and saw a swallows nest under the eaves of the roof of the tea shop. We were also joined by a cheeky chicken cleaning up the crumbs under our feet.
