Today we had a day out at Bolton Abbey.
Last time we visited my little boy was in a pram!!
This time he was often well in front, running in his wellie boots.
The priory is beautiful, even on a dull day and the stone work is amazing.
Do you like a nice door?
One of the popular things to do at Bolton Abbey is to walk across the river on the stepping stones.
The photo below shows the stepping stones and was taken from the yorkshire.com website
I suggested we all walk across for a bit of fun, never again!!
My little boys legs are not really long enough, we didn't fall in, but came soooo close.
The water in the photo looks calm, it was a lot faster flowing today and surprisingly deep in the middle.
We may try again, but only when the country suffers from a prolonged drought!!
We did a circular walk, so avoided the stepping stones on the way back.
Look at that, you would almost think they where chatting!
I told him 'If the duck follows us all the way back to the car, you can keep it as a pet', it didn't thankfully.
To steady my 'stepping stone' nerves we called in at the fabric shop on the way home.
I felt sooo much better.
