Summer Days - Tuesday Punch & Judy and Saving Snails

Another lovely day today despite the cloud cover and forecast of rain.
We went to the Punch and Judy Show at the City Museum. It was a traditional one with lots of bashings and a crocodile and baby and all. Lots of oohs and ahs from the audience - children and adults alike. We loved it. This next picture is about 20 minutes before the start of the show. Lots of people came and there were 3 shows in all. Mary watched two and would have stayed for the third (all the same).

Afterwards we had a look inside the museum. It is really good and has lots of interesting exhibitions. I have been there lots of times before which is a good thing as I was rushed round by my girl.

Then we went outside again and Mary played in the maze. We saw a butterfly (not a common site where we are).

And we saw a couple of snails. They were right by the maze and children's crushing feet so we each picked one up and moved it to the safety of the bushes. I think this is the first time I have ever picked one up. Having a little girl next to you does make you braver.

On the way back to the bus stop we walked through a park and Mary at long last found a tree she could, in part, climb.

A lovely day but we were so tired that back at home one of us had a nap. The other played with her toys. At nightime we could hear Mary putting on a Punch and Judy show for her toys. Must get crafty and make some puppets.
Another good day and cheap too as the show and museum entry were free.
