Tring a ling a ling

We pottered about this morning before we decided to head off into the small town of Tring. It is a short 30 minute walk across the fields. When we got there we were pleasantly surprised to see so many shops, so we got our letters posted at the Post Office and bought some bits and pieces. We then went to the small Natural History museum which is free and a sister to the large one in London. Well, we were the only ones in there and we had it all to ourselves. It is much better than the London one because you feel you have more time to look at all the different species. You can also rummage through draws to look at Bugs, Moths, and Spiders including looking at different kinds of eggs.
We spent the rest of the afternoon in there before heading back via M & S for some food shopping.
When we got back we had a BBQ in the beautiful weather we had been having. We are all on our own now in the basin and we are just loving the peace and quiet. In the evening we went round the lakes to make the most of the longest day of the year. This was taken at 9.30pm......Romantic!

Spent many a happy hour at Tring Museum. We went there many times on school trips. I grew up in Chesham which is only approx 10 miles from Tring, so I am enjoying your travels at the moment as the places you are visiting take me back to my childhood :-)
