Just back from our summer holiday. This time we visited the Cotswold's. We hired a lovely holiday cottage deep in the countryside.
I read the visitors book in the cottage and so many people had walked for miles, cycled for miles and enjoyed being out and about in the countryside. We enjoyed the countryside but didn't take part in any strenuous activities - we loved relaxing in garden and we loved the shops!
Sitting out in the garden was entertaining. A green woodpecker came down into the garden each evening (we have a great spotted woodpecker that visits our garden at home but we hadn't seen a green one before) there was a kingfisher, swans and ducks on the pond, and early morning MrG saw a muntjac deer. One evening we heard a strange whooshing noise and went outside to see two low flying hot air balloons - the whooshing noise was them turning on the flame to rise above the trees. Another night the Red Arrows flew past!
