A Visit to Tintern Abbey

After the Beeches Farm Camping we went to Tintern Abbey as its on the way. My husband said its free but when he got there we have to pay for the parking (which you can use to eat at their cafes) and the entrance is a bit pricey (at least for me) we paid £11 for us 3. Upon entering my son cant contain his energy and he just run and run to the space thats available which is a lot of course.

He would go to nooks and crannies to pose for his Dad and I was given a chance to enjoy the Architecture. I am in awe of this space. I am savoring everything. Thinking of how they constructed the place through the ruins that I can see. Layers of slate and stones. I cant stop touching the rough texture and my hands never felt happier. After a few minutes left on my own device I joined my perky son in his play. I so envy him as I am way knackered and just thinking of the things that I need to go home makes me more tired. His energy is just way over the top. I was thinking the camping should tire him out but I guess I was wrong.

After going rounds the ruins for so many times we decided that we need to eat as its way past lunch time. And he is still energetic! Smiling happily to everyone in the cafe playing on the table while Daddy is in line (which is long). After eating he ask if he can play at the play area. After getting frustrated for being too small for some of the equipments there he crashed and cried. He wants to be taller so that he can play them!

I said he needs to eat veggies and fruits because it helps you grow faster, taller. He cried some more saying he doesnt like veggies and he would grow too if he eats chocolate cakes. And he will eat a lot of chocolates. Oh well.

    I love his energy to run and jump. He looks delighted with the space there and what a beautiful building it is. I would be fascinated to see it up close like that. Thankyou for sharing on Country Kids.
