spring outing


We’ve just had a truly smashing weekend, the temperature rose to 21c would you believe! It was the bank holiday weekend here in England, that’s when we get Monday off too, a lovely break indeed, just what we needed. After months of gloomy winter, we were able to go out and about again, such wonderful bliss! This time around we ventured on a steam train that went uphill through a beautiful forest. It was a short trail, but enough to keep us happy. The first stop led us through a short walk into the woods, the next station took us to an adventure tree house and the last one was to a picnic area with a little playground. We thoroughly enjoyed our four hours outdoors today, unforgettable. So much so that I felt the need to blog almost instantly! I am going to allow some of the pictures I took tell you the rest of our story, hope you’ll like them! 😉

  1. I’ve heard the stories about English weather so it truly does look amazing! Spring’s been very slow in coming this year, hasn’t it? Seems to be the case most places in the world too. Lovely photos as always!

    And yes, Spring is really beautiful, birds singing, buds coming out, and retiring all the woolies.
    Incidentally, which part of England is this place? Really very nice.
