The Grotto

I luffs the Grotto at Chatters-A-Way
(nuffin to do wiv the picnic we have there honest!)

This is the way in…..

Couldn't you just sit and stare at that view all day?

But its just as interesting from the front…
See the little cave under it?
Its a room decorated with stalactites 
lined with rare mineral thingys
Its too delicate fur us to go in,
we go in the wooden Band Stand on top

Can you see the lovely pond in front of it?

It was originally built by Keira Knightley Duchess Georgiana 
in the late 1790s
Wow…so its over 87 years old!!!!

I do hope my peeps will take me back again next year

Please Dad, can we?

Loves and licky kisses
Princess Leah 


  1. Princess Leah I'm 100% Sure Duchess Georgiana was smiling big time when she saw a Princess in her Grotto enjoying that gorgeous scenic vista.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  2. oh how great that a Princess came to visit the grotto of the duchess! what a fab place... maybe there is even a treasure inside? you have to go back to find it ... that's an argument right? I'm sure your dad will understand ;o)

  3. It is just beautiful, Leah! Mom is loving the waterlilies in the pond too!

  4. Oh how I wish there was smell-o-blogging. I bet there were smells for days! What a lovely place to visit.

  7. That is so beautiful! Just out of curiosity, what did you have at your picnic? Not that I'd be in it for that ... just trying to show interest.
    Yours sincerely,

  9. Hari OM pretty sure your request will be granted! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. Did you not try and sneak your way in??

  11. I bet it's nice and cool inside that cave! When ghostwriter was in school, she belonged to a "Grotto Club." They went and explored caves. If you ask her if she would go inside one of those caves now, she says a resounding NO!!! I guess she was a lot more fearless when she was a teen.

  12. That looks like a fairytale setting which is perfect for a princess ♥

  13. Leah, we bet we could have a lot of fun with you exploring that cave.

    And absolutely, come on over for some bbq. It is raining today, but we will put in a special order for some nice sunshine just for you.

  15. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Oh, what an amazing place! What sort of things did you smell there???

  16. We bet your Dad gives in to that pretty please look in no time!! Mama and Daddy sometimes dive in grotto thingies...but we think a picnic in the gazebo would be much more fun(and tasty too!)
