The New Forest National Park

We have spent the weekend in the New Forest. The New Forest National Park is  located about 20 miles from Bournemouth.  We set off in our wellies, our waterproofs and jumpers, to enjoy our classic summer weather.  It was cold and wet! 

Walking in The New Forest

The New Forest is absolutely beautiful. It has pigs, ponies and cows roaming around freely. Today we found a grass snake, which I dithered about picking up,( as I wasn't a hundred percent sure it wasn't an adder) It was amazing. LBR (who is scared of spiders, ants. . pretty much everything) held it, and really studied it. Surprisingly  they really are quite beautiful.

A New Forest Local

We found a "horsey tree" where the boys sit on the branch and bounce up and down, A poorly mole, which ended up having a full burial (in a hole dug by the dog) and we all said a pray.  

A dragon Fly
Fox Gloves

We stood on a bridge and threw stones in the water, we built a dam. Finlay dug up a shoe, a ball and a sock from the bottom of the river. (I was a bit worried there could of been something attached to the shoe!) There were, foxgloves, furns and oaks.
It really is one of the most beautiful places in the UK. No wonder it has just received the "National Park" Status.
