Fort Nelson

 Yesterday we went out with both Josh and Sammy, Josh wanted to take us to Fort Nelson, it's only 10 minutes drive from home, so we meet the boys and mummy and daddy there.
Kev and I went a couple of months ago, we walked around enjoying discovering the local history, but this visit was very different. Josh loved all the guns, and there are so many he is able to touch, he does not play with guns at home, they are all sizes as you can see from the cannon below, Sammy had as much fun as Josh. This is a perfect day out for boys of all ages and sizes.

 At 1pm, the fired a large gun, twice, Josh was very brave, but still needed a cuddle, Sammy did not like the noise. After the guns we walked in the tunnels, well we did, Josh ran around jumping out of gaps scaring us, and had so much fun.
Grancha walked with Sammy taking their time, Sammy was able to see everything, there were rooms for us ladies, they had a perfect Victorian kitchen, you can see more here,and on the way out a very good cafe.
All in all it was a fun time to spend a couple of hours, when we finished we had two tired but very happy boys, local history can be fun, I'm not a fan of war history, but seeing it through the eyes of a 6 year old was different and fun.

Nanna and Grancha came home for a rest!
