On Saturday we  took part in the Nutcracker Christmas Trail down Milford Marina.  They always put on great Christmas events (although we’re really missing the ice rink- please bring that back) which we like to support each year.

We picked up our forms at Milford Museum and walked across to Phoenix Bowl to find the first clue.

Every time we found a different Nutcracker we had to make a note of his name.  Izzy did really well copying all the names down.

After Phoenix Bowl we popped to the Waterfront Gallery.

Then we walked along the Dock’s Shops. As well as the trail there were also special vouchers for most of the shops and businesses along the way.

Only Caitlyn was “brave” enough to have a photo with him.  Rebecca and Izzy aren’t keen on big characters.

We then went to The Crow’s Nest to collect our goody bags and get hot drinks and food.
