Hideaway: Welcome To The Weekend Link Up

Hideaway: Welcome To The Weekend Link Up.

Happy Friday friends. How are you today?

That half term school holidays went by quickly!

Blink and you missed it.

Just a few more days left and then it is back to school.

We are off out today.

Taking the children on a surprise day out. Just hope the weather stays dry today as it is mostly outside where we have planned to go.

Watch this space!

Hideaway: Welcome To The Weekend Link Up

Welcome To The Weekend Link Up. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have fun at this week’s blog hop.

We found this little hideaway on our walk a few weeks ago. I have been for walks around this lake we visited for years but never noticed this place.

A little hideaway with a river and waterfall. I bet it is a lovely place to visit in Summer.


We only found it by climbing under the hole in the hedge.

It looks like a big hole but the path is a lot higher up on the other side so it is easy to miss.


The bridge arches look lovely and the waterfall looks great.


Time for a bridge selfie!

    What a beautiful waterfall you found! It reminds me of Hawaii, where you have to crawl under all manner of bridges to find the most gorgeous natural wonders—all worth the climb! :)Cheryl Shops
