Ferry Meadows with Friends . . .
Monday was a day of outdoor fun again with our besties. This time we hit Ferry Meadows in Peterborough equipped with our scooters and a sense of adventure.
The visitor centre at Ferry Meadows gives out free bags of bird food so that the children can feed the ducks, swans and geese. The older children managed to get through their bags of feed in record time but if Jelly Bean had been left to his own devices we would still be there now. He fed them one little piece at a time!
During the holidays they are running a treasure trail. You pay 50p per person to play and are given an activity sheet to complete and then have to walk around the lake collecting letters to make up a sentence. Once you have completed the sentence you head back to the Visitor Centre and if you have the sentence right you get a prize.
This was the perfect way to keep the children moving around the park, they were so excited as they found each piece of the sentence. Karin and I had to keep up quite a pace to stay close to them. Thankfully we managed to catch a breather whilst they let off a little more steam in the adventure playground.
Ferry Meadows is a regular haunt of ours, it’s such a beautiful place to visit and very popular with families, dog walkers, joggers and people from all walks of life. There is always a pretty photo to capture through every season of the year.
Yesterday we actually discovered somewhere we didn’t know existed, this beautiful little garden is located at the back of the Visitor Centre and was the perfect place to enjoy a snack with the Beans. Karin and I were able to sit down and have a chat whilst the children ran up and down, playing the musical pipes, jumping on the stepping stones and smelling the aromatic flowers.
The 6 week summer holidays can seem pretty daunting stretching out in front of you but when you’ve got good friends to enjoy them with, it makes it a 6 week adventure to look forward to.
We made another little video of our adventures as a fun reminder of our day . . .
