Fingers crossed no rain

 Our Big Family Picnic on the shores of Bewl Water in Kent was held yesterday. 35 family members across four generations  gathered to chat, eat and sail. It was good to see old and young together. These hands belong to the youngest - baby Teddy who was as good as gold all day, happy to be passed from one adoring female to another!

It's easy to sometimes forget we are all part of a clan. Sharing stories and seeing similarities reminds us and gives us our place and roots.
Our clan yesterday stemmed from my grandfather William who fathered 7 children and family trees were busily scrawled on bits of paper to show our common lineage.  
Wish that everyone lived closer...
