My Sunday Photo 21.2.16

As half terms go we’ve had a nice quiet one, a few play dates, some trips to the park in between showers and plenty of snuggling under a blanket time. We wont win any awards for adventure, but it’s been the kind of restful week we’ve needed. On Saturday in an attempt to blow a few cobwebs away we headed off to Rode Hall near Congleton in Cheshire to enjoy their annual snowdrop walk. 

The weather was not kind, but wrapped up against the elements we managed to enjoy two hours of outdoor fun and fresh air; and we were rewarded with a hearty lunch and a warm by the fire when we’d finished. 

My favourite picture from our visit is of one of my favourite places at Rode Hall, the boathouse, a small wooden boathouse, covered in moss and clinging to the side of the lake. It fills me full of memories of Swallows and Amazons and more recently a visit to the Dylan Thomas Boathouse.

It’s as pretty as a picture, even on a grim day and fills my head full of adventure and mystery.

  1. That boathouse really does look like the sort of place where kids could have all kinds of adventures!

  2. What a beautifully serene place – a very calm view #MySundayPhoto

  3. I think it was cold everywhere, lovely photo though and I hope you enjoyed the snowdrops too

  4. Love this, it does look perfect sitting there next to the lake. Definitely a place for adventures 🙂

  5. That really is as pretty as a picture! It looks so idyllic perched on the side of the river and a great place to hide out.
    Yes, half term was cold but getting out and about still has to be done sometimes, doesn’t it?!

  6. Love the green moss covering the boat house.

  7. That is a beautiful, wintry picture. It must look so different in spring and summer. We’ve had a very quiet week too. Roll on spring!

  8. It looks so pretty sitting there surrounded by nature.

    Thank you for linking up

    Never been to Rode Hall. A snowdrop walk sounds like something to put in the diary for next year. Will pop and read your post. #MySundayPhoto

  11. What a lovely view. That boathouse looks like is full of storybook magic – definitely a place where there is scope for imagination! 🙂

  12. Looks like a beautiful spot x

  13. Quiet half term for us here as well. This photo is so tranquil! #mysundayphoto

  14. I love this photo for so many reasons – the colour, the scene it sets, the stories waiting to be told around the boathouse … I see rowing boats setting off filled with champagne and strawberries, I see murder in the middle of the night, I see a story waiting to be told. This is absolutely my favourite picture on MySundayPhoto for ages 🙂

  15. Looks like a wonderful spot for an adventure. Glad you’ve had a nice half term!
