We have all been amazed by the weather this autumn – perfect for long walks on Dunwich Heath and at Minsmere, searching for the deer!
The odd day has also been perfect for a spot of kite flying – in fact our most successful kite flying day ever. Somehow the children now seem to be reaching an age where they can enjoy controlling the kite, without too much danger of them blowing away!
Whilst Not Cooking …
We have for quite a while been eyeing up family sized canoes, with thoughts of exploring the River Blyth, or the Alde at Iken. The still water among the reed beds looks like such an enticing place to float away a few years. Somehow though the canoes felt like a BIG purchase, so instead, this summer – whilst not cooking – Jason and a friend have been busy building a canoe!
Some of you may have already heard about this project, but I thought perhaps some pictures might be a good idea.
So, we have the canoe in progress …
and then, finally being launched into the Waveney.
Just to let you know – it does float, it steers straight AND can fit MANY children and at least one adult in !
