It has been far too long. It may seem like yesterday, but Cubling was only 2 when we last visited our nearest island, and for years she would ask us to go back to that place where we have to take the ferry and where we cycled around the island and saw that scary rock face.
It turns out we inadvertently waited until she had forgotten about the scary rock face, and it was all new to her, with some memories coming back. For Snowflake, it was the first ferry trip and as is her nature she took it all in all calm and observant. We had a fabulous first day and a cold, windy, rainy second day. I'm sure there's money to be made in a soft play on the island because there is pretty little you can do with kids if the weather is as atrocious as it was on day 2 and you've packed the spring/summer collection.
But day 1 - it was so worth it.
