We've been invaded!

But in the BEST possible way...
My sister, BiL and their three GORGEOUS children arrived on Monday evening - and have left today.

We didn't have the best weather - we had great plans for walks on the beach etc etc, however the FOG kept us in somewhat.  Tuesday was only a little grey - so Sis, I and the kids went to Tehidy Country Park

William FINALLY plucked up the courage not to drop the peanut and the squirrel played nice!
 This is a lovely country park - where the wildlife chase you round the lake for food.  If you are scared of birds then I wouldn't recommend it (think of the movie The Birds).  At the end of your walk - if you sneak a look behind you - there can be up to...well HUNDREDS of rooks, jackdaws, gulls and ducks following you down the path!!  
Millie kept waggling it a little too much!  She got there in the end though - it was just a bit too quick to catch on camera.
 The kids just love feeding the squirrels - as some will come and climb on you and take nuts from your hand!  
They even did a spot of tree climbing...
 It turned out to be a lovely morning - the sun came out so made for a beautiful walk.
This is actually a shot hubby took almost 1 year ago at Tehidy 
 I love that you can take bread, nuts and seed to feed the wildlife with the kids without fear.  Even the swans are VERY well behaved.  The don't come out of the water or fight (I guess cos they know they are well fed?)

Spot the bread competition - there were LOADS of these Black Headed Gulls (in their winter plumage)

So pleased you had a good time. Lovely pictures. I love the one of the swan with the drop of water dripping from its beak.

When we lived ion Grmany, there was a small pond near our first house. We would go often to feed the swans. You had to be careful if they had young ones as they were very protective. A lot of hissing. Kenny is so very talented. I just love his perspective in his photos. Hope you had a fun and safe New Years. May 2011 be filled with happiness, health and great adventures!!!
