It is always good to explore new places. Ashton Hill Woods are actually fairly near to our home but we haven’t visited before.
Off down the path we went through the woods.
We stopped and climbed up onto a wall to see the view
It was very exciting to reach the Big Tree Grove.
The big trees are Californian Redwoods and were planted over 150 years ago.
We stopped and ate the cherries that we had brought along for refreshments.
At times there were two strange bears walking just in front of us!
Nye is very small so it is necessary to keep a close eye on him in the bracken in case he disappears….
We decided to search for fungi…..
Found a lonely very tall mushroom!
At the edge of the woods there was a gap in the wall….
On climbing over we found some very well manicured grass and hills to roly poly down.
We were having great fun but the humans called and told us we were on a posh golf course!
Back in the woods I climbed up a tree. Nye needed a paw to get up too.
He made it in the end!
We enjoyed exploring Ashton Hill Woods; a peaceful place.
