Away with the Grand children!

As we had promised to take Izzy and Freddie away in the caravan we booked two nights at Northam Farm, Brean.
Amy brought the two children up to us at lunchtime, and they had no idea that they were coming away until they saw the booster seats being put into the Freelander"
Well we set off with two very excited children, and traveled the M4 / M5 route down to Brean.
We were soon on site and Izzy and Freddie 'helped' us set up.
We had fish and chips for supper and then all went up to the Club!  (not one of our usual activities), where the children enjoyed the entertainment!
We left at 9.15 and all collapsed into our respective beds!

In the morning we all enjoyed a proper English breakfast, whilst we decided what to do as it was raining very hard!
We decided that the Seaquarium in Weston-Super-Mare was the place to go. 
I have to say that it was an amazing place, and we all really enjoyed our visit.
The rain had now abated so it was back to the caravan and the children could play outside,

Sunday dawned bright and sunny, so after another hearty breakfast it was off to the beach, where the children played and had ice creams.

We returned to the caravan  and cleared up, leaving the site at 3.30.  We drove home up the Weston road and through the centre of Bristol,  therefore avoiding the inevitable Sunday chaos on the M4 and M5.

A thoroughly enjoyable week end but also a very tiring one!
