The Great Sloe Hunt

We're going on a sloe hunt
We're going to catch some big ones
We're not scared

Hang on......that's bears not sloes!!  

Well, we definitely went on a Sloe hunt.   We had a lot of fun too.  However, we came out empty handed.  We followed a great tip off to find loads and loads of sloe bushes only to find them, eventually.....already cut back by the farmer.  Boo hiss......don't they know that I NEED to make sloe gin.

 I'm not a massive fan of the foot shot.......normally because ALL my shoes are really scruffy.  However a family foot that's a whole different story.
 We stumbled upon this great den, the kids loved it!
 Spooky gate.  The magic is on the other side of that.  There's a red dragon that lives there.
I love my family, they are bonkers!

Anyone know a great place for sloes?  No, oh well.  I'll be hunting again soon.
