We got back yesterday from a few days in the Forest of Dean. It is a beautiful part of the country, lots of trees (obviously, clue in the name ) and rolling hills.
We stopped off first in the small town of Coleford. It's not a very pretty place, so no pictures but we needed some lunch and as the saying goes "any port in a storm".
After lunch we headed of to a local arboretum
it adjoins Forestry Commission land. The arboretum itself is quite small so after walking round there we ventured further afield into the wider forest. The weather was glorious, bright and sunny, so I got a few photos like this.
The sun shining through the leaves but I won't bore you with them all. We walked down paths like these
as we headed for this lake
which we waked round, it was very peaceful. Then it was back to the car and off to Ross on Wye where we stayed. We had a stroll round the town, no pictures this time because the light was going and I always end up with out of focus pictures when the light is bad. On Tuesday we headed over to Hay on Wye but I'll tell you about that tomorrow.
