On day two at Sam's Dad's we had a really slow start. We all enjoyed a lovely breakfast of freshly laid eggs, collected the previous day by the children.We sat around the fire pit, enjoying, lovely fresh food in such a beautiful place.
After breakfast we met up with Sam's Dad Ed - who kindly took us on a tour of his beautiful property. Ed is a retired Forester and is extremely knowledgeable about his land and surroundings.
|Max especially enjoyed hunting for Frog's|
During our tour, Ed introduced us to Huckleberries. These small berries are delicious.
Max didn't enjoy them as much as everyone else.
I do believe Ed lives in an exquisite part of the world.
The Koi pond is my favorite part of the house. At the end of the night we said our goodbyes - we had all bonded and again I felt close to Sam and Annie. This is the really strange part of a teaching exchange - we live in their home, sleep in their bed and holiday with their family - yet we have never met. But I feel like we know Sam and Annie so well?
Thank you Ed and Merry for your generosity and company. Our stay with you will be a wonderful memory.
P.S. Ed - your art print will be in the mail - please not to the Chicken shed!
