spending time at this trout farm was probably one of our favorite experiences of our trip! the farm was of course just beautiful, and we ended up hanging out and being there much longer than we originally anticipated since the grounds were so pretty and they had a fun little playground as well that the kids just loved. eleanor and samson both caught two fish (while conrad napped) and we ended up buying a little portable grill right there at the farm and cooked them up and ate a yummy trout lunch together! it was seriously so much fun (besides the gutting of the fish part. although josh loved that and samson officially gutted one of his fish by himself with josh’s supervision! it was impressive.)
feeding the fish!
and now, time to go fishing!
the moment both eleanor and samson caught their first fish was so priceless! these photos don’t do it justice, but it was such an exciting moment for all of us!
there it is!
right behind me is the fire pit where we placed the little portable grill we bought and settled in for lunch! they had little kits with tin foil and salt and some other cooking utensils and plates. josh ran down to the little shop at the other end of the farm for some bread and butter and drinks. one of my favorite meals of our trip just because of the experience alone!
conrad took his turn feeding the trout after he woke up from his big nap!
this trout farm was seriously so so beautiful.
bibury in the cotswolds was seriously so colorful and alive with blossoms. i don’t know who lives here, but i desperately want to be their friend. ;)
jumping off walls is his specialty. :)
this home was one of my favorites. i love the arch detail above the front door.
after our time in bibury, we visited the blenheim palace grounds where we had fun at their adventure playground and the big mazes in the pleasure gardens at the palace.
we checked out the butterflies at blenheim palace and realized that all butterflies, even british ones, are obsessed with mister samson. it seems that everywhere we go where butterflies live, they land and love to hang out on samson! it’s amazing! he is our butterfly whisperer and we love it.
