Tourist Strolls [The Ordinary Moments]

It is the most bizarre time the week after Christmas and before New Year. Everyone is still hyped after Christmas and no one has a clue what day it is but we were all at home together.

When I opened the curtains I was somewhat taken aback that THE SKY WAS BLUE so we decided to do something we very rarely do – go for a stroll round town. I avoid going into town usually if I can because with a twin pushchair I can’t actually get into most shops! We live in a touristy town so of a weekend, when I’m brave enough to let the girls walk around without a pushchair, it’s usually busy so ultimately we rarely spent any time just down the road.

Seeing as we all needed to get out and about, we went early and stopped for breakfast then had a walk round the castle. Well, technically it is a castle – just not much of it left!

 None of these pictures have been altered (and are only taken on my iPhone) but I can’t get over the colour of the sky. It was starting to get busy so we headed back but all really enjoyed doing the tourist thing, even if only for a couple of hours.


It was a great way to get out abc about before the rain came back!

    Lovely photos. I did’t realise you lived so local. Love visiting there. We usually go a couple of times a year x x

    You look like you live in the most beautiful place, I was trying to figure out if I knew where it was from the photos but I can’t. That sky is such an amazing colour. Our nearest city is Cambridge and it is always full of tourists, but sometimes we can’t help but join in and go and take photos and do the tourist thing- I think it makes you appreciate the place you live even more. x

    Beautiful place and beautiful photos, I keep being tempted by an Iphone, especially for the camera. I love the girls Yellow coats, and that blue sky is amazing xx

    Your town looks beautiful and it must have been lovely to get out about without the usual tourists. Happy New Year! x
