More sights and sounds from Nyan’s trip to England in August 2019.
One bright day, we joined Elizabeth, as well as her sister and mommy, on a visit to Mountfitchet Castle, a Norman-era castle and village that’s now a living history museum, complete with buildings, catapult demonstrations, and livestock that the villagers themselves would have had some 1,000 years ago.
Some views around the place:
There were deer to feed:
And chickens and other fowl as well:
Oh, and then there was armor to try on:
And those things that make you look like you’re an archer:
And a place where you could practice your sword skills:
Don’t forget the stockades!
And there was a gift shop that sold ice cream-ish treats that turned the kids’ tongues bright red.
The day after the wedding, everyone got together at Uncle Aung and Aunt Laura’s house for a barbecue by the pool. (Yes, it was hot and sunny with a swimming pool. In England!)
All the cousins were there, so we tried to get an all-cousin photo. Middling success.
Nyan loved playing and ‘working’ in Phwa Phwa’s garden. Watering plants, planting flowers, and digging holes for various purposes. Or no purpose at all. Elodie and Tabitha liked to help too.
On our last night in England, a group of us went out to a nice dinner that happened to be at the restaurant where Mommy and Daddy had their wedding reception some 9 years earlier. Nyan enjoyed taking a little tour of the reception hall and listening to stories about the wedding dinner held there, before he was around.
We wrap up with various photos from the flights between Singapore and London, via Dubai.
