Today we took Helen to Hatfield Forest. I haven't been there before so it was a first for me as well, although Mum & Dad have been there with the dogs in the past. Hatfield Forest is a National Trust Property comprising over 400 hectares of ancient woodland, grassland and ornamental lakes. It is one of the few surviving medieval royal hunting forests and has fallow deer grazing in it which we actually saw!
We enjoy walking along the shaded board-walk...
It made a huge change from the landscape we saw in Arizona (yet to be posted about) and Helen said it was a lot cooler here!
We wanted to go for a boat ride on the lake, but no boats were being taken out today.
Helen and I had fun building a den in the forest.
How did you get up there Helen?
Well she sure surprised me...climbing up there in a dress as well!
Are you going to come down now?
Umm....I'm not sure I can!
Uh oh, it looks like Helen might be stuck and will need help climbing down.
