England Summer 2013, Part 7 – if you go down to the woods today
So, you’ll all no doubt be aware that the woods are my absolute favourite place in the world. I grew up a few minutes walk from there and spent all my free time exploring as soon as I was allowed to go on my own.
So when I go back to see the kids, we have to go there. It’s the law.
And besides, what better for kids than to get outside, go for a long walk, explore, learn some history, learn about trees and animals that live there, hear some stories from my own childhood and generally, well, just be kids, something that is increasingly hard these days.
I love that I can share just a little bit of what I find special and I love that they find it special too.
I don’t really have a lot more to add to this post other than the photos. I hope you take the time to see in them something of what I see.
My parents have pretty much the same photo of me climbing through the same hole in the tree at the same age.
Here’s the pics from last year. It’s amazing how quickly kids grow up!
