Above, Autumn 2010, arrival at Walton Hall / Walton Park Hotel
Above, Walton Hall, a good few years earlier.
Kids had broken up from school so we decided to take advantage of a great 'show and tell' opportunity -
Very excited when I told them our hotel was surrounded by it's own lake, but a little nervous when I mentioned it was once filled with hippos.
Then early morning outside broadcast with my little helpers -
Final farewell before hitting the road to catch a plane to Ireland -
What a great way to earn a days pay......
