Discoveries with grandchildren

Playing in the garden, or going on a trip, my grandchildren point out discoveries that I would not have seen. Sitting on the top of a bus I engage my 10 year old grand-son in a conversation about technological developments, in iPads and smart phones. Soon I find I am almost out of my depth, speaking a modern language and struggling for words and phrases like “platform”, “3G”, and “search engine”.

There is certainly a potent mix when grandparents and their youngsters spend time together. For this reason I am offering a quiet day trip on board NB Jessica for any grandparents who wishes to join me and spend time reflecting on their experience both as grand children and with their grandchildren. In particular we will dwell on the spiritual influence that is passed on

from generation to generation


The first trip will be on Tuesday 4th September starting from Ratho. Places are limited, but contact me if you are interested.
