Apple Picking at Sandringham......

On a glorious sunny Sunday morning we headed over to Sandringham, for a spot of apple picking, it didn't take long, but was well worth the drive. And as my son said, as he was picking off the trees "It was well worth coming for this, wasn't it" it just goes to show that not everything in a childs life has to be money and technology driven. We now have plenty of stored apples to use over the coming months..........



Apple trees are so pretty, I love their craggy branches....



There is plenty to do and see at Sandringham, aswell as the house gardens and museum, which we didn't visit this time, as we had taken our dog , there are woodland walks, a gift shop, restaurant, an outdoor picnic area and plenty of room for children to enjoy bike rides and ball games. We were also lucky to find the Farmers Market there. We then drove up the coast to Hunstanton for lunch and a walk on the beach. All in all a lovely day out, which we hope to repeat next year.......
