Getting There - The Courts

So off to Wiltshire. Obviously we left relatively early and found the cottage we were staying at. However we couldn't get in until 3 so where to? I decided we'd go for a stroll around the Courts - the only problem is that the tearoom is lovely and I was with my Dad who has this strange value for money thing (my Mum would have been racing to the cakes with me :D ).

The gardens were looking lovely and though the weather had a few light showers we had an enjoyable stroll. My 82 year old father scrumpted an apple. I hope the National Trust will forgive him!

Butter wouldn't melt.....

Ooh so tempting

The Westbury White Horse

Your dad is a vry handsome man, Pete. And I can hardly believe that he'd be 80+!

I'd have gone for one of those apples too.

(If I'd been able to reach them, of course..)
