Travelling through the Cotswolds on Friday by coach we stopped at a lovely village where we saw some children at play. They looked to be just out of school and enjoying the tiny bit of dry weather we saw that day.
One lad looked like he had had a hockey match that day, while the other was playing 'walk the dog' with his yo yo . The girls were enjoying riding their hobby horse and skipping.
"I'm really not sure I am doing this right" Oliver says as he looks at his yo yo with a puzzled look. "I'm sure it is supposed to come rolling back up again"
The girls have moved on to play a game of hopscotch.
Molly throws the stone for her turn.
"Wow, you got there fast" says Emily.
The boys are enjoying a game of conkers, Oliver is about to take his shot.
Emily is having her turn now.
It was a joy to watch children playing outside, instead of shut up inside on computers!
All too soon we had to head back to the coach for a rather long and windy, stomach lurching trip back to the hotel.
