We’ve had fun this week with our two little grand-daughters, Maggie and Jo. They normally live in Glasgow.
When they first arrived it was hot. All they wanted to do was to go swimming, from the moment they woke up in the morning.
Swimming under supervision
It was fun with the neighbours
The girls enjoy cycling and some afternoons we took them along the voie verte.

Always room for a friend
At Bois Dernier near Cormatin is a picnic area with escalades, a zipline and monkey bridge for the children.

More challenging was the Accro’Lugny where there is a parcours suitable for everyone from four years old to adults. The girls quickly learned how to clip themselves on with the carabiners.

And for the brave the parcours noir. Frightening to watch but perfectly safe with the harnesses. Perhaps an idea for the next foyer rural outing?
Most of all the girls enjoyed the life in the country.
Getting to know the hens
They could feed the horses and the hens. They were invited to visit the bees. And there were sessions of football and climbing trees in the garden.

Maybe next year they will be old enough to stay with their mamie and papy in the summer while their mother works. Just like the French kids.
