Wind in the Willows (again)

The weather hasn't been good recently, so unfortunately we haven't been out and about as much as we would've liked. We did however, visit our local reservoir the other day and what do you know? - the Wind in the Willows carvings are still there!

My second gig this year, still can't believe it!

We were also very lucky with the weather!



My next post will be about Berkhamsted Castle.

Blakes Wood

There's nothing more relaxing than a walk in the woods. And Blakes Wood in Danbury is the perfect place to go in order to 'blow the cobwebs away' <3 p="">
