Our Museum Ticket from last year was still in date, so before and after our usual Cefn Lea week in Wales we stayed at the Ironbridge YHA and re-visited some of the Museums.
Below MIP is filling some plaster moulds at Blist’s Hill Victorian Town.
Bear and Littlest at the China Museum.
Games at the YHA Open day – what a team!
On the way from Ling’s Meadow to J’s mothers we called in at Woolverstone Marina to see if the Nancy Blackett was home. She was, and the Skipper and Mate who had just arrived kindly took the children aboard and showed them around. Picking up on our children’s enthusiasm they then decided the depth finder should be checked.
Next they decided the sails needed checking. We took some very happy children home that night (and then joined the Nancy Blackett Trust).
Sailing is being the main event here this summer. We are down at the sailing club 3 times most weeks – Wednesday pm for club night and Saturday and Sunday afternoons for Bee, Mip and JJ’s groups. Matt has now done his level 2, JJ has just moved up from his Optimist to a Topper, and Bear has just started in an Optimist. Bee and Mip are on a week’s course this week. In the picture below, from left to right, Bee in a Topper, Matt and Bear in a Heron, Mip in a Topper and JJ in an Oppy.
