After Beren returned from his friend's birthday party we headed off up to Kergord Woods with marshmallows and a bag of flour and dried fruit.
Given it was a soggy afternoon we were a bit surprised to see another car parked on the roadside, but we headed up anyway and into the woods with Beren calling 'Hellooooo' every now and again. As we approached the old building we could see another family and smoke from a fire that was just about out. After collecting a bit of wood we resurrected the fire, strung up a quick tarp and began to toast a few marshmallows with the other family. Unfortunately they had to go before we got the bannock mixed and cooking on a stone; I'm sure they'd have loved it as it was really nice and too much for us.
If you're reading this, get in touch so the kids can play together out and about again another time.
After stuffing our faces and tidying up we had a play on the couple of swings over the little burn before heading back home to share our tales of adventure with Clare.
Here's a little video of our afternoons fun...
It's been a fairly quiet weekend, but I did get a brief sight of an otter up at Hillswick yesterday which was great. I'm just waiting for the weather to improve a little so that I can take Beren camping. It'd be no fun in rain and gales at the best of times, but even less so with a 5 year old in tow!
