This week, we decided to visit somewhere we haven’t been for a long time – Screech Owl Sanctuary.
We were looking at local places to visit recently, taking into account where we can do something outside. Both to make the most of the nice weather, and also something that isn’t just gardens; because I don’t want you all to get bored of me(!)
