Excellent day. I nearly didn't go because once again I was feeling rotten and running a temperature of nearly 39 degrees. But as I'd suggested this as an event for the HE group I kinda felt like I had to go. Rather fortitiously too, I'd forgotten about the clocks going back on Sunday, so there I was thinking I'd be late, only in the end to be about half hour early!
Kent Wildlife put on a really good event. The rock pooling was great. Rye was fascinated by a couple of medium sized crabs that were found. We found lots of hermit crabs and a tiny little fish. Rye had a fabulous time playing with his new friend, G.

Rye with his new friend G :-) G was great with him and Rye followed him everywhere and wanted to hold his hand and hug him constantly.

A truly wonderful day, just a pity I felt so ill. I sweated buckets and looked absolutely awful - still Rye had a fabulous time, made new friends and I did too. M has organised for us to go to Evolving Earth, which is part of the Folkestone Book Festival - its really aimed at Key STage 2 kids, but apparently the organisers were really excited at the idea of home educators attending, and while Rye is a little young, we're gonna go too, and afterwards, weather permitting, we'll go back down to the coastal park so the kids can play.
