Autumn in The Cotswolds

Great walk with my son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons from Bibury to Calcot over the track looking down on the beautiful Winson Village in the Coln Valley.  Not a sound of mechanisation just a few cows a couple of dog walkers, horse rider and us in the amazing scenery.  It was a perfect afternoon in the sunshine.  Seeing the grandchildren rolling down the hill towards Calcot laughing you realise how precious these moments are, so free in the open air without having to be entertained .  A cup of tea and piece of chocolate cake to celebrate a birthday, collecting apples from the tree and the windfalls also created great fun and hilarity.  So off to the Inn at Fossebridge for an early supper of fish and chips and a cheeky glass of wine for some beer for others and appletize for the children.  So home to bed with a wonderful glow and reflection on how beautifully behaved the boys had been considering their ages or 3 and 5.  They had walked all that way without a whinge, ate delicious cake, made by my niece for her daughters 12 birthday, picked apples, played cricket and ate their supper.  What more could one wish for lets hope today goes as smoothly.
