Animal Silly Face Competition! (and a new Play Area)

Another wonderful year is almost over, and so much to look back on! Another beautiful Spring and Summer, with the sunshine continuing right through the autumn and into the winter, bringing us lots of sunny days and bright frosty mornings. Beach days running into December yet again for our holidaying families, who have all been so great to us and so deserve it!

But enough of that, some of the animals here have been posing with silly faces this morning so in true internet tradition, these are the photos we shall share with you.

Abbie blows a raspberry, whilst Alasdair chooses “statuesque and aloof”. This is typical of their personalities in general…


Chicken Mafia. Little Dude presides with May, June and also Long-Distance Clara briefly popping into the background before roving off once more.


And to add something sensible here are a couple of pics also taken this morning of our new Play Area, designed and handmade with local materials by the amazing Earth Wrights.

Outdoor play is still at the heart of a great childhood
