This afternoon Little Man had the most excellent idea. He suggested we should go and visit the chain bridge, or as it is officially known, the Union Suspension Bridge. It is only a few minutes drive and quite lovely.
It is a bit old and in need of some TLC so vehicles are discouraged.
And then you can go the other way...
It is a gorgeous place for a pootle on a Saturday afternoon. Here is the view up steam.
And here is the view down stream.
And of course when you have a bridge, what can you do but play pooh sticks. The water was flowing pretty fast today so you had to drop your stick...
and then run as fast as you could to the other side to see them come out.
Just down stream from the bridge is this lovely house.
On the end wall is this beautiful espaliered apple tree.
The best thing about our little outing was that we saw the sun for a few minutes.
And look what we found!
It would have been the perfect opportunity to soak up a bit of vitamin D except it was so cold this was the only bit of skin I dared to expose!
And then a couple of minutes later it started to snow...
