Good news – bad news – good news.
When my sister was staying we met up with my son and his two boys: Big Bro 5 and Little Bro 3 and went off to the Hardy Monument just above the village of Portesham, where my sister and I lived with our family as teenagers. Recently the monument to Admiral Hardy (of ‘Kiss me Hardy’ fame) has been renovated and acquired by the National Trust. For £2 you can climb to the top and on a good day, see as far as the Isle of Wight.
Good news: It was a good day, look at that clear blue sky!
I had checked the Monument would be open from 10.30 am and we arrived at 11am.
Bad news: Annoyingly the car park was locked shut and we had to park a little further along the road. We thought that by the time we got there the monument would sure to be open, and
and for us to have a walk and enjoy the views
Just perfect on such a day.
where the boys (both big and little) had fun climbing up the slopes.
