These are a few pics from my latest visit to see my family. I should have tagged them onto the end of Sherwood Forest really, but forgot. It was a bright but nippy day when we visited Barton under Needwood Marina in Staffordshire. Although I grew up in this area this is all new to me. I once walked along the canal from Burton to Lichfield when I was about 17, it was never like this. The marina sits on the Trent and Mersey canal and was purpose built in 2001. It is privately owned.
We had a walk round the ponds. This is my nephew Daddy Adrian pushing Jacob. My sis is in disguise with the headscarf and shades on, ha ha. Next to her is Jo, Ade's fiance, mum of Jacob.
Isn't he a gorgeous little fella. If all babies were like him, happy go lucky and never throws a wobbly, I would have a dozen or so, ha ha.
We browsed the shops on the waterfront.
And browsed inside as well. Sis wonders whether to buy something, I talked her out of it. Noooo costs far too much.
We went in the cafe and had coffee and cake, yum.
Too expensive but it was a one off.
