It has been a few weeks since we have had a Wednesday adventure, poor weather and busy lives have stopped play, but we finally managed a long overdue one yesterday. And because it is the summer holidays now, my middle boy, Max, could come too – yay – I always feel guilty when me and the other two are off having fun when he is at school!
This time we decided to head to Glastonbury, about an hours drive from where we live. I thought the boys would enjoy the connection to Arthurian legends, and that it would provide a some photo opportunities for me and the teen. Sadly we had grey skies and drizzle – which meant we didn’t climb the famous Tor in the end. (Though I was quite relieved as no doubt Syd would have wanted carrying half way up it!). Instead we opted for a look round Glastonbury Abbey and a trip to the Chalice Well.
They loved exploring the gorgeous ruins of Glastonbury Abbey – and none of us could get over the size of the place. It offers ample opportunity for hide and seek and imaginary sword play and is stunning and atmospheric, even with grey skies!
The Chalice Well is the home of a natural and reputedly healing spring. It is a lovely little place, incredibly beautiful – designed for meditation and peacefulness. You take a circular stroll through gorgeous gardens, alive with colour, butterflies and dragonflies. We all adored it’s nooks and crannies and hidden seating areas, as well as loving trailing our fingers into the cool spring waters.
Both places were stunning and really fueled the boys imaginations, a lovely day out, and even the sun joined us by the end of the day,
