Day 12 a holy stone

All those who have been following our 30 days wild adventure will know that we have been visiting family in Hastings this weekend. Yesterday we enjoyed a family wedding on the sea front and the kids spent the day on the beach collecting stones with naturally eroded holes in. 

Today we went to Auntie Jeannette’s and uncle Mace put rope through a particularly holy stone for the boys to keep, to remember a wonderful wild weekend.

“Trust in the LORD for ever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:4‬ ‭

Day 10 a trip to Hastings, weaponry and a nest!

Today we left the safety of the shire (our Welsh Valley) to go and see family in Hastings for the wedding of the year! (More on this tomorrow!).

The drive down was lovely until we got to the M25. We then crawled for three hours to the south coast. This did allow us to focus in on some beautiful scenery that we would have otherwise whizzed past. 

It was a five hour trip from hovering buzzards in the Welsh Valley to seagulls on the south coast.
When we arrived at our chalet/caravan the kids continued in their wild adventure by making weapons out of fallen branches.

We then went to my auntie’s house and enjoyed her garden, which includes a nature den (known as the bus stop).

The boys then made a nest and used stones for eggs

“How lovely is your dwelling-place, LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young – a place near your altar, LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭84:1-5‬ ‭
