If there is one thing we figured out on this trip, is that WE ALWAYS NEED A PLAN. Most of our trip was scheduled up, however there were a couple of days where we thought we would just explore and do what we wanted to do. On this day we thought we would just walk, take some pictures and just explore.
They were done with that by noon and asking, ”What are we really going to do today?” And so we ventured out to Bourton-on-the-Water.
We loved it.
First, we got lunch and ate it by the canal.We sat around and played “say something nice about the person next to you.” This was Piper’s face when it was her turn to listen to something about herself. We then found an awesome Bird Sanctuary to visit.
And then we found the coolest thing ever….The Dragon Fly Maze.The Maze was grown with Hedge Walls, kinda like the Harry Potter Maze without all the magic.
There were clues we had to find along the way in order to solve the puzzle at the end.One of the funniest stories happened here. When we got to the center and needed to solve the puzzle we realized we had missed two clues along the way.
So we went back to find the other clues, except for Claire and Ellie who opted to sit on the bench. There was only one other person in the maze. A boy, I am guessing that was around 14 years old. He went in the center building to solve the puzzle and must not have seen Claire and Ellie outside because after he solved the puzzle he yelled out loud in a high pitched voice, “AT LAST, VICTORY IS MINE!” He then walked out and saw Ellie and Claire sitting there and awkwardly walked off. It’s one of our favorite catch phrases now.
