I-Spy in Kent (abridged, part 2)

I’m back playing author of my imaginary “I-Spy in Kent” book. I’d say there are two positives with my version of this I-Spy book. It’s a slim volume, with only 10 points to check off, so a mighty quick activity. And secondly, you can sit down with a cup of tea, wherever you are and tick off the list, just by looking at the photos.

With no further ado, I present items 4 to 10:

I wanted to show the children a different part of the country and point out what made it special. I’d spent many holidays as a child, visiting relations in the county, and I wanted to share this area with my own children.

First three list items were cherry orchards, oast houses and hops growing. Not that common in Somerset.

Motivate

This weekend, we went to Hay on Wye. A long promised trip for the Teen. She had been fascinated by the idea of a Welsh town that specialises in secondhand bookshops. No self professed book lover could resist. It didn’t disappoint.
