An Autumn Walk


autumn fall berries


On Sunday we joined our regular "stick walk" organised by my Team Parish - so called because the children and dogs collect ever-longer sticks as we walk!


steps in Ashridge Forest- National Trust


cartwheels on autumn fall walkThere were lots of autumn colours, berries and crunchy leaves. The children ran and cartwheeled with endless energy. I however was more than ready for a sit-down and a cup of tea by the time we finished the hour-long walk in countryside around our village which includes Ashridge Forest. (National Trust-run)

It's so nice to spend the afternoon with friends outdoors - we are going to try and carry them on through the winter on a monthly basis so hopefully I'll get some nice icy and snowy shots too!

    1. Its lovely - I probably would veg at home without this - meeting up with friends and tea read-done is a great motivator!
