Looking for Robin Hood

Looking for Robin Hood

Yesterday here in Nottinghamshire it wasnt raining so we took advantage and went off to Sherwood Forest which is quite near us. My grandson had a wonderful time picking leaves acorns sticks berries etc to make an autumn picture. We also saw lots of different toad stools and mushrooms which we told him fairies and elves dance round at night. He was disappointed the shop was closed (i wasnt lol) My daughter Sophie said it was great to be out in the fresh air together so we got our wellies on and I took a walking stick and did my impression of a tortoise walking round the forest. Luckily lots of seating available to have a rest. It was a lovely afternoon a good to be alive day. hope you all get to enjoy some happy autumn days.

  • What a lovely day you had.xxx

  • Yes it was smashing.

  • Beautiful pic. I love autumn - my fave season.

  • Me too.

  • How lovely to be out at about on a sunny autumn day. Apparently we are in for some fantastic shows this year.

    I just wish they would hurry up and get my ramp done so that I can nip up to Dartington Hall Gardens on 'The Beast'. It is truly beautiful there and always good for the soul (except when you fall down the steps and dislocate your finger).

    We've had some pretty foul weather here in the South West and apparently a bit of a rocky ride due over the next few days. I must say, I quite like a bit of a storm though.

    Glad you had a good time.
