Still jet lagging and chocolate
We still had a rough night of sleep last night. Sierra slept until 2 am before she was wide awake again. She fell back to sleep about 5:30am. Needless to say, we all stayed in bed until 10am and skipped breakfast. Hopefully the third night here is the charm and we can sleep soundly until 5 or 6 am. It was a cold but sunny day here today. Sierra and I explored the grounds of the Study Centre before lunch. After lunch, we all walked to Bourneville which is the village that Mr. Cadbury (the chocolatier) built for his workers. There was a lot of wonderful architecture around and they had a playground which Sierra loved. We walked into Cadbury World (the factory) but skipped the tour because we had been told it was expensive and boring for a 3 year old. We did enjoy looking around the shop that sold all the various chocolates they made there. We sipped lattes while Sierra munched on chocolate covered animal crackers. We walked back through several small parks with duck ponds and saw a variety of water fowl. At one point, the ducks started following us because I was holding a plastic bag of chocolates and the ducks thought I would feed them something from the bag. I will try to attach a picture we took of Sierra in front of their Cadbury chocolate egg cars. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
