Last Walk, Dolly and The Station

21 Aug

This was our last morning with our Live Wires and they wanted to walk up to see the engine houses on The Great Flat Lode trail up behind our house.  It was quite a haul for little legs so I took a short cut with T and J went further with his Grandad to see the engine houses close up.  On our way up the lane we met a couple just going to feed their horses and they invited the children to go to watch. Dolly had a brilliant technique of kicking her bucket to loosen up her food which we all thought was very clever.

After lunch, it was time for the train and goodbyes and now the house is all too quiet and still – and I need a rest!!

Thank you so much to all my lovely readers who wrote such encouraging comments to my little Guest Bloggers! They will reply when they are home, probably tomorrow. They were both so delighted to see their blogs published! I think they will want to join in on every visit from now on!

    Was it long enough? Probably not, though am sure all involved had the time of their lives.

    Dolly, well named, is a Gentle Giant. I often see heavy draft horse working in the fields on Mennonite and Amish farms in my area. They display an air of confidence which I like. They do have a mischievous side when they have too much spare time on their hands.

    Young bloggers in the making with their Gran to guide their way! It’s a bittersweet sort of thing when Live Wires like yours come and spend time and then they fly away. The house seems to mourn with us when such lights no longer flicker about! Thank you for sharing them with us! Love to you.
