After a day's cruising up the coast road on Saturday, yesterday we did a little more work on the house, getting the cladding up around the staircase followed by an afternoon chilling.
Today we've been to visit Tropical World near Roundhay Park, Leeds. We had high hopes following a visit a few years ago, sadly though, the only thing they had an abundance of today was screaming kids. The butterflies and birds must have gone into hiding to avoid all the commotion, they seemed to be very thin on the ground whereas last time they place was alive everywhere you looked.
Although the lack of bird and insect life was disappointing, the spectacular show of tropical plants and flowers more than made up for it, keeping us busy with the shutter and keeping our minds off the little terrors all around us.
A little bit of therapeutic shopping followed at Castleford before returning home, mowing the lawn and trying to find out why Lucy is obsessed with sticking her head in our dry stone wall!
