I thought I would try to forget about ships & sea for a while, which is quite difficult as I’m surrounded by it. So here are some shots from our stay at Cholmondeley Castle, Archie our dog being the central theme.
Here he is checking out the alpaca’s, I think he thought one was his Mum.
The large double story stables in the background is where Ginger McCain trained Red Rum, winner of the Grand National in 1973, 1974 and 1977. His son Donald took over the stable from his father in 2006 and followed in his footsteps by training the 2011 Aintree winner Ballabriggs.
A bit of tree climbing with my son Aiden.
One last sit in the mounting block before the drive home.
