Trees and sky

This photo was taken on a day we expected to be awful, but turned out fantastic. We were on our way driving up to Scotland (see this post) and had only had about 2 hours sleep. I had been driving and I turned off the road, knowing I was about to fall asleep. I spotted signs for a castle, and hoping it was the kind with a tearoom, I headed for it. We found Drumlanrig Castle and I would definitely recommend a visit. It was PERFECT. With a massive adventure playground which Twink loved (and meant he was nicely worn out when we started driving again!), and obviously, a lovely tea room, it couldn’t have worked out better if we’d planned it. It was a gorgeous crisp early summer’s day and the adventure playground was in the middle of a wood, with lovely tall trees. In this photo I’m lying down looking up at the sky and the trees. I love the different shades of green on the leaves as the light falls on them. We’d be back there every week in the summer if it wasn’t so far away!

  1. Lovely. As a castle lover ( http://christinemosler.wordpress.com/2010/07/01/castles-and-kids-2/ ) and tree hugger this post is perfect for me! Tree canopies are magical, lovely photo!

    It was a magical place…possibly helped by the gorgeous sunshine and the utter peacefulness. All you could hear was laughing, chattering children and the birds in the trees – no busy roads at all.

    Hey hun – gorgeous picture. Tree huggers here too – now when we’re in a park Moomin runs up to the nearest one and says, “Ooh that’s a big one, have a big hug!”
