Off the water

We’re currently staying at our son and daughter-in-law’s home and yesterday visited the National Trust property Moseley Old Hall built in 1600 by Henry Pitt for the local Staffordshire Whitgreaves family.
 The Hall is famed for it’s connection to the survival and escape of Charles II - helped by 3 young boys who stood ‘look-out’ for Cromwell’s soldiers - one of whom had the name of Palin - could be a distant relative of ours!!

Grand-daughter Lucy in the stocks ...

 ... and Ed ensuring that his specs are safe before we start to throw the rotten eggs!

Watch out Ed - Dad’s about!


Ed doing his ‘slow motion’ run ...

... through the grape vine tunnel
As you can see, it was a lovely day but a bit chilly as we called at the pub for a pint before going home ...

 ... to a roaring log fire and lamb balti for dinner!
Perfect end to a perfect day.
