My little bit of this big World

D Day commemorations

We had a distant view of The Spinnaker tower and the area near Southsea, we were sat in Porchester wreck along the shore line. 
 The flyby was very distant and my camera would not capture much as it flew over the Spinnaker tower. 
 The picnic was enjoyed by everyone, Will loves these southern fried chicken bites, I did cheat and get 3 meal deals from our local Co-op.
 Plenty of time for finding bugs and walking along the water's edge.

 Under instruction
 I can do it. 
The morning was cloudy but dry, we chose this location so Will could run around and not get bored, a picnic was more fun than sitting in a busy cafe. There were a few people out to watch this flyby, it was a bit distant, hubby got some good photo's using his big lens. This area is just 10 minutes drive from our home, we often cycle up to the local sailing club cafe, where we always have a great meal.
We only stayed about 2 hours, plenty enough time for Will to have loads of fun, we also took a football and a frisbee, such simple pleasures.
According to Will, Trump went over twice in a helicopter and the queen three times, he shouted hi each time one flew over.
How quickly and easy to cheer up, simple family days are so important.


  1. It sounds like you all had a lovely time. You're right, simple pleasures are often the best, especially when family is involved.

  2. Looks like Will and Granddad had a wonderful time!

  3. Looks like you had a good time. It's easy to entertain the kids with simple things like a picnic. Weather permitting I take Bonnie a walk to the park on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, she loves giving the ducks their din dins :-)

  4. Looks like you had a great time. Many years ago we'd cut through the recreation park after school, just yards from our home. The boys would play for a while with local children from both the red and blue school (their words for the different kids uniform). I'd sit and chat a while and meet the Mums. A few times we'd take a picnic at the weekend, at 3 and 5 yrs, they were easily pleased then.
    Your story about Will spotting Trump and the Queen flying over reminded me of taking the boys to Loch Ness, the youngest (3yrs approx) shouted - look, I can see Nessie! To think many men have tried and failed, but he happens to be in the right place at the right time and 'thinks' he's seen Nessie. We headed to the souvenir shop and purchased a Nessie for him.

  5. I love the way they are so interested in everything at this age

  6. What wonderful grandparents you are planning a day that was sure to please!

  7. Will looks so perfect on the lovely crochet blanket. I do hope he gave Grancha some good advice on taking pics LOL
