A Day Outing!
It was a glorious, fabulous & enjoyable day for myself & my family, so I would like to share this day outing with you.
Originally my wife & I planned to visit this National Trust House on 12th a week before we went, but because I had to come into work due to the problem we had on Thursday(10th), I didn't have a choice but to change my shift so that I would resolve the matter & have a smooth flight operation safely & securely. Anyway, thankfully there was none further in trouble. So we were at last able to make outing together and went to Cliveden because we are a member of National Trust (as we can visit any National Trust in UK).
(Near to the Maidenhead Bridge)
It was 19th of April, Saturday. My wife prepared some packed lunch for us first & foremost in the morning. As soon as we got ready, we left home and droved passing through the town (Reading) towards the Slough. On the way to Maidenhead, we decided to stop somewhere near to the Maidenhead Bridge in order to have a lunch then, so we got off the car & walked a couple of hundred yards , and we found a nice place along the riverside to sit and we had our packed lunch there because we felt a bit empty in our stomach. We then droved to the destination called 'Cliveden', and parked our car somewhere on the grass near the gate, as the guard wouldn't let go up to the actual car park due to the car park being already in full.
Last few days the weather wasn't good to us, but on that day it was unexpectedly a nice & sunny day, fabulously great! We pleasantly & happily walked around the House, the Maze, the Garden (including a small secret garden), the Riverside (129 steps going down to the river), etc. It took almost three hours. We have had a four years old girl treating like our laughter, called 'Jessie', and she was with us for this day outing.
When we walked inside the Maze, there were five ladies sitting roundly in the middle of the maze and talking each other, then suddenly Jessie walked towards them and sat down where there was an empty space, and she introduced herself, 'Hi, I am Jessie', surprisingly all the ladies accepted her introduction although they were pleasantly surprised, then she talked about her necklace, bracelet & ribbon bow (like hairpin), which she made herself with her teacher help on the previous Sunday. It really amused us, as it was our day.
