Today we walked into town as it didn't seem to be as wet as forecast:
|All set for a walk|
Suddenly my tween daughter has started being fashion conscious and carefully chose her wardrobe for a trip to the shops!
When we got into town we had a surprise encounter with Oscar:
He and his friends live at the Owl Sanctuary and are regular visitors to Elephant Yard in Kendal where people can learn more about these beautiful creatures. My daughter was keen to have a hold of this little beauty Star:
Of course I wasn't allowed to get away without getting up close to Oscar! I have to say when he flaps his wings its a wee bit scary.. luckily his claws were safely on the far side of a leather glove:
On this occasion my son declined to have a hold. He has been braver in the past though!
