I’ve got to be honest we haven’t spent a lot of time in the UK in April. We went to Malawi on the 3rd April and didn’t get back until the 19th which hasn’t left a lot of time for exploring the UK. We did have a lovely day out at Dunham Massey just after we got back with friends but I didn’t take a single photo – it was actually quite liberating.
When I am exploring the UK I tag all my UK days out photographs #UKexplore on Instagram and if you aren’t following me over there I’d love you to do so! You can also keep an eye on what we’ve been getting up to. I’ve managed to find a couple of UK based photos from April.
We had fab work / play date at @StAnnesBeachHut yesterday with a lot of laughter. Despite it raining pretty much all day we did get the chance to take some photos in-between catching up and sharing ideas and contacts. Whilst I actually thought @letstalkmommy ‘s baby might show up during one of our laughing fits, thankfully she has saved that for another day! It was so so lovely to spend the day with the ladies and I’m thankful that we decided over a year ago to do these little get togethers regularly. Thanks @extraordinary_chaos @goingonanadventureblog @lifeasourlittlefamily too! Oh and someone has just asked where I got the trousers from, they are @hm in fact the top and jacket are too. Not sponsored or gifted, I just bought them and someone asked so I’m telling you!! #ukexplore #myEngland #lifeunplugged #countrylife #countryliving #ukexplore #thegreatoutdoors #autumn #ABMlifeincolour #postcardsfromtheworld #thegreatoutdoors #lifecloseup #capturingcolour #dscolor #colourmyjoy #acolorstory #colorventures #abmlifeiscolorful #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #abmhappylife #thatsdarling #forahappymoment #holdthemoment #momentsofmine #lovestylelife

Just in case you aren’t aware what #UKexplore is, it is our Instagram community that we have invited you all to join in with and share your favourite places across the UK and your outdoor adventures. To join in it doesn’t have to be a photograph one of the 534 National Trust properties (although we do think they are amazing); we want to see your ‘off the beaten track’ spots, too. It could be the most marvellous of meadows, the perfect place for a picnic, the loveliest lake for skimming stones, or rambling routes for running along. Wherever and whenever you’re out exploring, simply take a snap and upload it to Instagram so we can all share in your adventures and explore the UK with you. All we ask is that you use the #UKexplore hashtag so we can find you. You don’t have to be a blogger, anyone can join in and be in with a chance to win. So without further ado, who have I chosen this month….

Some of my favourites from April are:
This month’s winner of the Day’s Family Pass to a National Trust property of their choice is GoLiveYoung with this beautiful shot of Loch Curuisk.
How’s this for a view while eating lunch? We didn’t think we’d top our hike around the Old Man of Storr yesterday but today we visited Loch Curuisk. .. .. This morning we drove to Elgol, a spectacular drive on Skye. From here we boarded @mistyisleboats which took us across the sea to the loch. We then had a couple of hours to enjoy this splendid scenery. .. .. The most amazing day with stunning weather. Skye has really wowed us 😍. .. .. .. .. #skye #lochcoruisk #visitskye #visitscotland #lovegreatbritain #ukexplore #lovegreatbritain #lovescotland #getoutside #outdoorfun #hikingadventures #hikingwithkids #ourtribetravels #fearlessfamtrav #explorerkids #familytravel #ukftb #bringthekids #familytravelblogger #goeverywhere #showthemtheworld #neverstopexploring #goadventuretogether #beautifuldestinations #guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lpkids #lppathfinders #adventurekids #letthemexplore
