Day 2. Black Country Living Museum.

Hi Friends and Followers.

Sunday morning and although it was overcast, it was mild. It was so mild no coat was required for the whole day.

We were to spend another day at the Museum.

There is something so magical about this place, it is actually very calming amongst the hustle and bustle.

Many of the cottages had their fires lit and cooking was going on. Turnip soup at one house and vegetable soup at another. The smell was wonderful.

Today was quieter, there were not as many people about, but this was not a bad thing, because it gave me plenty of opportunities to take photographs.

We spent most of the day chatting to the people who volunteer at the Living Museum and it has actually made us think we may volunteer at some point. Both Keith and I would enjoy helping out and talking about boats.

It really is a special place and well worth spending the day here.

Eventually the sun came out, even one of the pigs was enjoying the suns warmth on her skin. The other one was still in bed.

Today was my turn to queue for the Fish & Chips. Joking, this was at least 2 hours before it opened. We did get there for 11.30 am and not long after the shop opened, there was only a couple of people in front of us.

So our weekend at the Black Country Living Museum has drawn to a close and we cannot thank the people there enough for such a wonderful time. Special place and special people.
