We'd packed a lovely picnic, but this being England it was raining heavily, so we had to eat our picnic in the Visitors Centre.
Luckily the rain stopped for a few minutes, so the children and our non-member friends were able to have a quick walk around the Temple grounds while we were in the Temple.
It started raining again while they were outside, so Tag looks a bit bedraggled in these photographs, but despite being cold and wet he enjoyed checking out the exhibits at the Visitors Centre.
After three hours at the Temple we drove to Lakeside, one of the largest shopping centres in the UK. It was raining a lot all the way and it was very difficult to see where we were going. Tag was very glad he was in the passenger seat and not driving.
But on the way we did pass through Dartford Tunnel which you may recognise from the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Harry and Hagrid go through it, mostly upside-down on Hagrid's motorbike.
Then Hari and Ceri went to the Apple shop and had lots of fun playing with the computers.
Tag loved looking at the giant biscuits at Miss Millie's cookies, and meeting the bears who live there!
What a fun day we all had! Pity about the weather, but this is England, and it rains a LOT. Better get used to it, Tag!
