Our Holiday Adventure Part 1
Wee Man and I went away for eight days. Where did we go? We went to Market Drayton in Shropshire to see family and we went to Whitworth in Lancashire to meet new friends.
We had a fantastic time!
We went from Inverness airport on a Flybe aeroplane and landed at Birmingham International Airport.
We had to get on a shuttle bus to get to the actual airport building and collect our suitcases,
then we went on a computer operated monorail to Birmingham New Street train station,
(picture courtesy of Google as it was too dark to get a photo)
where we caught a Virgin Pendolino train to Crewe. The Pendolino is Wee Man's favourite train in England, 'because it goes very fast and usually has 11 carriages'.
At Crewe we got a taxi to my daughter's flat that she shares with her partner and two year old Jack. It was well past midnight because the plane had been delayed for two hours, so my grandson Jack was in bed. Wee Man and I were quite tired and hungry but we just had some breakfast cereal and went to bed just after 1:00am.
Over the next few days we went to a soft play centre,
had a ride in a fancy lift, (elevator)
had lunch in a nice restaurant
and went to Chester Zoo;
we heard this male lion roar, it was so loud and completely awe-inspiring.
That was a firm favourite part of the visit but Wee Man's favourite was seeing the giraffes
The tallest was about 4.5meters tall and the baby, which was born on 23rd December 2014, was about two meters tall.
We bought a soft toy giraffe in the gift shop and called her Geraldine.
And of course, we went on different buses and trains.
On Sunday morning Logan & Jack got to find and enjoy some little Easter eggs
whilst the packing was done.
We left at 1:15pm to go to Crewe train station for the next part of our adventure.
Love from Wee Man :-D
and Twinkle of course xoxo
