I had the most exciting and fun day today. My friends and I went to some local woodland that I'd never been to before. I love being out in nature and to walk through the quiet trees, stepping over nettles, brambles, fallen leaves, branches... hearing the sounds of the birds and finding gems in the forest.. was just wonderful. Seeing all kinds of fungi grow on trees, fox gloves and wild garlic growing wild! Just amazing.
After my friends climbed several fallen tree stumps, with me looking on hugging a tree (fear of heights!) and we trampled through miles of beautiful woodland, we came across a surprise. A little shack similar to the one in the picture above had been built (by Scouts we think...) made from all kinds of twisting branches with seats made from logs. So my friends and I climbed inside and pretended we were camping- it was like being kids again !
We had such a fun time exploring, despite getting slightly stung by nettles and then came back to a delicious lunch!
Hope youre all having a good weekend- do you have any sweet nature stories?
