Picnic at Longleat with some healthy Flora, Salmon & Cucumber Sandwiches


After a quick trip to Tesco for some Flora and other picnic supplies (see pictures of our shopping trip here on my google+ album).  We rushed home to create our picnic ready for our day out to Longleat Safari Park.  Longleat is one of our favourite places to take the children and we are lucky to live only a 20 min drive from it.

With hubby being on a gluten and dairy free diet, we made Ready Set Go Flapjacks from the Flora website. These were really easy to make, and the children enjoyed squashing the oaty mixture into the tin.

The children just wanted simple sandwiches, they decided on cucumber, tomato and home grown lettuce.  For hubby and myself we went for the Salmon, cucumber and avocado sarnies.  Both of the above recipes we got from the Flora Healthy & Tasty Recipes section of their website.

So with the picnic hamper packed, we loaded the car and set off for Longleat. The weather wasn’t on our side, so we headed straight for the African Village to eat before heading around the rest of the safari park.  From the picnic area you have a great view over the giraffe enclosure, and if you time it right you can watch the giraffes being fed too.

Dominik was more fascinated with the giraffes then eating, between nibbles he kept running back to the fence to see what the giraffes were doing. There is a baby giraffe in the enclosure, its only about a week old, so very cute!

Longleat is a great day out, we often go up there for a picnic and a walk around, after the safari the heavens opened and we got soaked.  So we paid a quick visit to the kids favourite section, meet the animals in Animal Kingdom.  They got to hold a tarantula and a snake!

    It looks like you had such a lovely time! The last time we went to Longleat it was absolutely HAMMERING it down and all the monkeys were shivering in hollows in the trees!

      I think it was just as we got to the monkey section the heavens opened. Which meant we avoided any damage to car from them lol

    First of all I want to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
