Whenever we're in England, the kids always want to go to the park to see the squirrels because there aren't any in France. (This is something that still surprises me.)
Alexandra Park in Hastings is squirrel heaven and they're really tame so we always head down with a bag of peanuts for the squirrels and bread for the ducks - the squirrels invariably end up eating both !
If you're patient and manage to stay still long enough, they'll even come and eat out of your hands.
This was a source of great excitement !
It's great to get this close to wild animals.
This cheeky one stole a whole slice of bread.
Then he sat on a nearby tree showing off and eating it !
This one came right up to my foot while I was taking a photo of his friend !
I even managed to film the kids feeding them on my camera.
I love Juliette's face at the 10 second mark !
I glanced at a nearby plaque and noticed that we were at McCabe's Well.
Juliette was very tempted to taste the water but I wasn't so keen !
Sophie quickly found a geocache that I remembered was there, even without a GPS - no treasure in this one though.
We finished off with a stroll along by the Buckshole Reservoir.
