We've been walking today! We went to Staunton Country Park in Havant for the first time. We've been to the farm there lots of times before, but never to the lake and woods, which were absolutely beautiful today in their late autumn colours. So beautiful that I took about 200 photos, most of which will now follow.........................................................................only kidding, although there are quite a few so you may want to fast forward through ;-)
The entrance to the country park has some fun wood carvings which Hannah really liked. She especially liked this child sized fairy door!
|Unfortunately no fairies were home!|
although one of us didn't spend much time on the actual path!
Until we came across what Hannah is absolutely certain is The Faraway Tree (from an Enid Blyton story The Enchanted Wood)
This tree is huge, and has fairy doors right up through the branches. Hannah is sure this one with the number tag is the slippery slip door!
The lake was gorgeous when we arrived. The trees were such lovely colours and were reflecting off of the water - it was stunning.
Hannah had brought her bird identification book with her and looked up the birds she didn't know.
This is too blurry really but it was such a lovely cormorant.
|Just look at those colours!|
|we passed a field of cows|
|Dean took a not 'very focused' picture of Hannah and me !|
|and a very rare 'slightly okay' one of me!|
