Forest

Hello

Thanks for calling in.

You may have noticed my recent post about the Festival of Music and Food at the Park.  Fearing that the car park would be overflowing, we decided to walk there and back, a mere 25,000 steps filled with stunning views and fresh air.


Navigating by the sun and quick GPS checks, as one forest path looks much like another, we sauntered through the countryside.  The wild rhododendrens looked a picture amid the green.


I don't think we took the straightest route, the problem being, having to negotiate the roads by finding an underpass, a needle in a haystack.



Needless to say, we were ready to get home for a cup of tea with about 10 minutes still to go.  The sign of a good walk.

What was encouraging was that lots of cyclists and people with their dogs were out and about enjoying the amazing space but I'm sure many just drive by without knowing it's even there.

    1. That's the trouble with cars, you've always got to leave them somewhere! 😊

    1. No, not really, especially if it's on the doorstep. 😊 x
