Rest Day in Richmond by gleavem

It made a lovely change today to get up at a more relaxed time and enjoy breakfast with Nathan & Clare; I still couldn’t believe they were there!  We started with a little mooch around Richmond, gradually getting used to civilisation whilst we awaited the arrival of Sid’s family … more visitors!  Unfortunately things didn’t start well when the car Sid’s mum, dad, niece and nephew arrived in (ours) had a flat tyre, so Sid and Nathan went off to get that fixed while the rest of us took the kids to the park for some fun.  I think Jack and Sian were trying to wear me and Clare out, getting us running back and forth with the zip wire and trying out every bit of kit!

After a nice lunch the family headed home and Nathan, Clare, Sid and I headed to the castle to explore.  It was quite interesting, and offered some good views of where we’d been and where we’d be heading the next day.

We fancied using some different muscles and so headed to the swimming pool for a splash around and to work up a good appetite for dinner. Once again it was great to have an actual choice of restaurants and we chose a nice Italian which our B&B hosts recommended.  It was a delicious meal and great to have some familiar faces to share it with!

This was a lovely day, though a little more tiring than we’d expected, but we were ready and raring to get going again the following day!
