Round The Wrekin And Up The Bird Table

IMG_20160417_094502

I wake up and ponder what the weather will be like behind those curtains. Did I really say I’d go up the Wrekin?

IMG_20160417_094511

Well at least I get a lie in.

IMG_20160417_103246

With the curtains open, the outside world looks so nice.

IMG_20160417_103241

What is for breakfast? I put some eggs in the blender.

IMG_20160417_103538

I put the egg in a bowl and some bread in the bowl.

IMG_20160417_103559

Get it well coated and then

IMG_20160417_103628

put it in the frying pan.

IMG_20160417_103702

Until it is golden brown.

IMG_20160417_104358

Then I go and sit with the Buddha.

IMG_20160417_104346

Yep I might have made a slightly too big a breakfast again. There is o rush though, so I take it easy and enjoy the flowers.

IMG_20160418_081609

I decide to take the Eunos. I quickly nip into the centre of town to get some money.

IMG_20160417_124318

And before you know it you are at the Greenies.

IMG_20160417_124038

Are they ready?

IMG_20160417_124004

They should be ready, as Nack stayed in the garden too long.

IMG_20160417_124042

Were ready now uncle Nack.

DSC04530

Well I’m first in Sara’s car.

DSC04531

And slowly they come.

DSC04532

Even the detective.

DSC04534

We head down the M54, towards that blimp on the horizon.

DSC04536

You could not ask for better weather.

DSC04543

And when we arrive it seems to be a popular place. People are parked everywhere, and the police are here ticketing everyone who has parked without consideration!

DSC04541

Luckily for us we get the one and only spot left in the official car park!

DSC04544

We gather our things and head off to find

DSC04699

The start of where we ae going. Oh did you know it was a volcano?

DSC04701

And did you know we are in the Wrekin Forest?

DSC04545

And so the walk starts up this path.

DSC04547

I have my safety contact lenses in and a straw hat with a pink flower. I’m prepared for anything. Believe me, on my prettier side it has a pink flower!

DSC04550

Apparently it is this way!

DSC04552

Sara just keep heading up, it the right way for sure.

DSC04553

And off goes energy legs.

IMG_20160418_080051

Who at the top of that bit is rewarded with a rope swing.

DSC04556

Yah Hey I want a go!

DSC04567

YEs we are all extremely excited about what we are going to find at the top.

DSC04572

The rest and sit down are over and back to it.

DSC04579

Obviously the young ones didn’t get what the problem was.

DSC04584

Sarah got the exact same feeling as me though. But Sara if you just stop a second and look back.

DSC04585

Wood. I’ll leave you with that thought.

DSC04593ah the summit can be seen, it is in view.

DSC04598

And we are going to be so lucky in that the clouds are fluffy.

DSC04599

And the sky is blue, here and there.

DSC04602

And here is

DSC04603

The top.

DSC04604

Or to put it another way, thankgod we are here.

received_10153621764432569

Now did I make it to the top first?

DSC04600

Wherever here is, now lets just check.

DSC04645

Oh yeah the photo, we must take at least one photo.

IMG_20160418_080955

Maybe another.

IMG_20160418_080944

And another.

IMG_20160418_080536

And so over the top of the Wrekin we go.

DSC04607

To the otherside.

DSC04609

Where I spot somewhere to sit.

IMG_20160418_080622

So off we march.

DSC04613

erm I can’t seem to get a signal. How am I going to Facebook this?

IMG_20160418_080653

Just sit down enjoy the view, a drink and some crisps!

DSC04617

oh look there's that pink flower.

DSC04619

I choose a new route back.

IMG_20160418_080749

Sara is some what not pleased by the rural path. DSC04626

Something in the lines of “You have got to be joking Nack” IMG_20160418_080807

Yeah I know, this isn’t where we are meant to be, and where is Tom? DSC04632

Oh right.

DSC04631

Apparently the correct term is “get Down from there”

DSC04637

We wait while he gets down from there.

DSC04643

I take in the clouds.

received_10153621764667569

And the natural beauty spots.

DSC04656

And to Sara’s pleasure we head back on the path we came up.

IMG_20160418_081023

Some people still full of energy.

IMG_20160418_081042

I mean still full. Lets climb a tree.

IMG_20160418_081108

Son lets not climb a tree.

DSC04674

We are back at the swings. And I still want to have a go. Yes me.

DSC04666

But Teggy wants a go first!

DSC04668

Awsome,

DSC04669

Higher,

DSC04672

Harder and then

received_10153621764057569

yes she does get off to let me have a go!

DSC04677

And as Sara heads down the path we came up, I cough and suggest that route over there.

DSC04678

Yes the one know on else is using!

DSC04679

We should have wondered why. Well Sarah should have!

DSC04680

Personally I thought getting back to a nature path would have been nicer.IMG_20160418_081153

Someone felt differently.

DSC04689

Wild times.

DSC04692

In the wilderness, its all down hill from here!

DSC04694

Very down hill!

DSC04696

But you know what.

DSC04697

We made it back to the car park safe and sound.

DSC04705

And so we hit the M54, and with the Welsh Hills calling us to the west, Sara, goes the wrong way and heads to them. She seems to forget this is going to be one hell of a diversion as the motorway doesn’t end or have and junctions until Shrewsbury!

DSC04706

Sometime latter those with all the energy in the world.

DSC04707

Are relaxed.

IMG_20160418_081235

On the way back we call into Auntie Mary’s and Auntie where we look out into their garden. Oh a squirrel.

DSC04709

We watch it play in the garden.

DSC04711

We watch it seek out the food.

DSC04716

We aren't the only ones watching it though.

DSC04718

There are others here ware of it presence.

DSC04719

And the gods are watching too.

IMG_20160418_081414

Is it a Bird?

DSC04725

Is it a plane?

DSC04729

Is it a rat with a big fluffy tail?

IMG_20160418_081526

Or is it plain cute?

IMG_20160418_081540

Well feed is what it is!

DSC04732

And with all that excitement it is time to go.

IMG_20160417_124353

I head home for tea at my parents and then off to bed

PANO_20160417_142223

To dream nicely about the day!
