A Blog Post from Sena and Koji's Family Day

Thanks so much to John for this blog post about Sena and Koji's great day out. It is the kindness of our families that makes this such a special experience for the boys. Thank you to them all.

Comfortable start this morning into Marlborough for a bit of shopping - postcards and special edition One Direction DVDs and vinyl. Then on along the A4 to Silbury Hill and the climb up to the West Kennet Long Barrow, then back and up the Avenue past the active archaeological dig to Avebury. But only a quick drive through and back today, we'll save a longer visit for one evening in the week.

Back onto the A4 through Calne - where there were THOUSANDS of motor bikes everywhere and even more bikers (I was driving, so Sena has the photos of this) - & Chippenham and up to the M4 for the drive to Bristol where we met up with my son Nick and his girlfriend, Laura. Laura has a certain cachet since she appears in two of the Harry Potter movies!

After a quick snack for lunch we walked along the harbour to the Brunel's ship the SS Great Britain.

 Laura decided to climb the rigging and Sena was very keen, but we didn't feel we had the authority to allow him to go, so we had to disappoint him.

Then a riverside pub for supper and a walk back too the car past the studios of Aardman Animations, the home of Shawn the Sheep where they made the acquaintance of an oriental Shawn.
