I am busy packing the camper for a week away with my daughter and granddaughters. Synchronicity (I'm not sure if that is a word but it sounds good) is a funny thing. And it often pops up when I look at Alexa's posts. Because today she wrote about Enid Blyton, and coincidently I have packed a copy of the Famous Five to take with us. My eldest granddaughters have started to venture off with their friends, just locally, but out of sight. A scary time, I remember when my own children were small and I had to start untying the knot in my stomach so that they could learn to be independent. They think they are quite adventurous and as 5 of us going away it seemed the perfect book to take for bedtime reading.
We are also taking our camera's. And as a bit of fun I have done a scavenger hunt, sparked by Rinda's summer challenge. And the fun I had away with friends recently. But instead of being by the water this time, we shall be staying in a forest. There will be wooden animal sculptures to find and a host of other things, and we shall be going to see King Lear in the Theatre in the Forest. The weather is promised to be kind, hot even, and I need to finish packing. So, I will tell you more on my return. Because right now it's time for 5 to go to the forest for an adventure!
