In which we go exploring in the Great Woods.

A surprise was in store for us this afternoon.  We got taken to the Great Woods!  It is such fun here and so much to explore.

Ryder and I set off.

Exploring tree stumps to see what we can find...

Deciding where to go next...

Enjoying the great outdoors

A spot of climbing

"Trip, trap, trip, trap! " went the bridge.
"Who's that tripping over my bridge?" roared the troll .

You don't think there really IS a troll do you?  Ryder asks me with a slightly worried look on his face.

It should be okay, I've never seen one yet!  I reassure him.

Phew I'm glad there was no troll under that bridge....I was a little worried for a while.  Ryder tells me.  I look on sympathetically as I remember when I was a bit scared about thinking there might be trolls under the bridge.

Let's explore in here...

....emerging from the other side.

This is great fun isn't it?  I ask Ryder with a great big smile on my face.

Looks like someone has started to build a bivouac - shall we see if we can improve it?

Do you think we will be allowed to stay here all night?

Unfortunately we weren't allowed to stay - probably just as well, as there is lots of wildlife that lives in the forest and it is a long way home if we got um worried.


  1. Super story and super pics. lives Henry close to that forest?

  2. Love all of the woods photos with Henry and Ryder having great adventure!! Thank you :)
