The Other World Over The Bridge


The day started with dreaming underneath the treetops, before Doodles and I (my 4yr old Adventure companion) went for the long walk over the bridge into the 'Other World Over The Bridge'.

It sure was a long walk! In the rain, too. The Swifts flew with us some of the way to keep us company. They were much better fliers than us! (Did you know a swift never stops flying, other than to lay!?)

We made it to the Column Of Victory! Erected by Queen Anne, in thanks to John Churchill who helped win the Battle Of Blenheim. She also built him Blenheim Palace...
Handsome Guy, Huh!?



Which we visited next... It is so absurdly lavish and fancy I could hardly contain myself! 




Now THIS is a crib! :O Talk about a silver spoon! 

Now, where here is where I fall in love... 
Please let me introduce The Long Library! 




And a little Church 

And we stopped for lunch at The Waterside Teracce, as Doodle loves the fountains, and so do I! 





We then went on search for the 'Arboretum' It too, was a very long walk..!  We saw many marvellous things, and had many mini adventures! 
Making friends with old gnarly oaks...
And had a chat with the roses... They smelled divine.... !







Our search was rewarded in seeing the Cascades! 






It's always an adventure at Blenheim......

Blenheim's Secret Garden

I've been at Blenheim again... this time, I discovered the Secret Garden. I think it has been a little difficult to access recently, as they have had big pavilions up.
But, I found it, and it truly is wonderful. It is full of secret pathways, bridges, little waterfalls, ponds and summer houses. I am planning on spending the day there soon, in the company of my journal :)




I will be sat on *that* bench.



And if I could, I'd be sat on *that* seat shaped branch... 

Have a wonderful summer!

A few days in July...

July is off to a good start! I am managing to fill the days full of friends, fun and pocket sized adventures.

First of all, was Eynsham Carnival. I spent the day hanging out with my youngest brother, and having a few drinks. The evening was spent by having a few more drinks, and watching the sun go down.... 





The next day, the next Carnival; Cowley Road Carnival. Having, a, uh, few more drinks, with friends while enjoying live music and craft stalls. 







It was an exhausting day!! 



 The next few days, I visited Blenheim, (of course!)




Squid rings... Mmmmm

I hope the rest of the Summer continues to be as wonderful!
