I hadn't quite finished Mr Nutkins tail when we set off for a picnic this afternoon so he came along with me, I knitted his acorn in the car so he didn't feel too left out while we were tucking into our dinner.
We found a lovely spot by the canal in Zouch where we could watch the boats passing through the lock and the cows wading on the other side.
Squirrel Nutkins spent most of his time asleep in my bag but he did pop out for a quick sit on a bush and a chat with Tom.
From our picnic spot we wandered along the canal the other side of the road through Zouch and had a go at skimming stones.
We also admired the wier and the speed at which the water travelled. I just love being by water, must be the Piscean in me.
