Gorsebank adventure – Dumfriesshire, November 2019

A late night arrival for our overnight pod adventure. Thank goodness it had a heater on this cold November weekend! We meet our accommodation before heading out for dinner at the nearby(ish) village of Kippford.

Evie orders and pays, making sure no one over spends!

After dinner we head for a short walk to the harbour to run off some energy – the reflections were astounding!

Knock knock who’s there??

It is all too exciting on this massive trampoline bed – there is no early night for Oliver and Evie. Far too much fun to be had.

Exploring the pods window the next morning – letting someone fresh air in. There’s a world out there to go and enjoy.

First proper go on the balance bikes.

Both needing some help whilst they build some confidence.

Packing up the car, we head to somewoods for a walk to give Oliver and Evie an opportunity for a sleep. The colours are just about still on the trees.

And it’s so calm that there are some lovely reflections on this small lake.

Then they are awake and running!! Up and down and round and round!

Looking for the quack quacks

After some lunch we head to Sandyhills beach. It’s not warm and the sea is a long way out. But they don’t mind as there is a lot of shelss to collect and look at!!

What have you found? Treasure?? Yes treasure.

Uh oh – this bit of sand was a little muddy. Nevermind, the afternoon is drawing in. We are all a bit wet. It’s time to head back to the car and go home anyway.

Thank you Claire and Oliver for our little Scottish adventure
