Afternoon picnic nearby, for those who can stay, with local parents shuttling those without cars.
Families should bring their own food, but there are places nearby to buy things and Alex can advise.
Monday, if anyone is interested in touring Polykow Holstein dairy farm (Alex Polikowsky's family's farm), Alex is willing to show it, and even transport those without autos (but don't schedule that too tightly!).
It's just over ten miles: Directions from the farm to the hotel, which you could reverse. ☺
