At Frensham Great Pond

We finally arrived at our destination - Frensham Great Pond. It is a large pond and takes 45 minutes to walk all the way around. It dates back to the 13th Century when it was owned by the Bishop of Winchester. The pond is now owned by the National Trust but  is free to everyone. The banks of the pond are sandy and offers a natural inland beach for visitors to enjoy.

By the time that we got there - having stopped at various points during the journey - the sun was getting quite low in the sky.

Our Daughter loves collecting bits and pieces on her travels.

Some more bits were collected.

Before they were dipped into the pond - what is it about children and water!

Our Daughter enjoying herself.

The swan stood (the water was shallow) and posed for this photo!
It was a lovely day out - despite the grotty old man, who I still can't believe was so horrid but there you go that's life!

On our way home we stopped to look at some cows in a field. This one looks as if it's wearing a short wig!

As does this one!

A bit further on and we saw that a hot air balloon had come down in a field. Every one seemed to be O.K. though.

Today Our Daughter had a friend round for tea after school. It has been a lovely sunny day and I've had to work! You can't have everything in life though can you. Most people are just grateful to have a job these days so I can't complain and by working it means I've got money to spend on a few treats - I've just booked to go and see "War Horse" by Michael Morpurgo at Drury Lane, London next month as the Other Half's birthday treat and we'll again be staying over - hip, hip hooray - I love London!

Until next time.



  1. My eldest daughter has been to see "War Horse" and loved it. We're hoping to take our youngest one day too. I love the photo of the cow in a "wig"

  2. You always manage to stir up old memories.. and Frensham Pond is one of them. I used to go there often as a child and would spend the day there having a picnic and swimming from the little sandy beach. Wasn't always happy about swimming in the murky water.. but it was a lovely outing nonetheless.
