Just returned from a day at Drayton Manor. I tagged along with my Daughter, son-in- law,grandson and grandaughter.It was a very good day.
For anyone who doesn't know drayton is the home of Thomas Land, you can see all of Thomas,s friends and have a ride on them.
Brilliant for all young (and old ) Thomas fans.

The week before we had a few days near Buxton in our caravan. The site is brilliant, it is called Clover Fields and i would highly recommend it.
Adults only, which made it nice and peacefull, a working farm, with donkeys, ponies and alpacas.
Tea rooms are planned for 2012 when hopefully we will return.
I just lazed about and did plenty of crocheting which is my ideal holiday, oh and shopping of course.

At the bottom of the road is a Bookstore with everybook imaginable, you can have a free drink with every purchase,while you browse your book.

Ideally situated for Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock and of course the Peak district on your doorstep.

 A warm welcome from donkey who had just returned from a visit to her boyfriend, maybe a baby donkey for next year? That must mean a return visit.

 This is a photo of the alpacas, not very welcoming animals, but nice to look at, I'm on the hunt for some alpaca yarn, its very expensive though.
Apologies for the photo but you should be able to enlarge it and have a closer look.
These photos look a bit dull, the weather was brilliant, just a bit windy, had no rain at all which is a bonus.

Crochet photos next time.


  1. Ooh our nephew would have loved Thomas Land. As for me? The book store sounds wonderful.
