A postcard from… the New Forest in Autumn (October 2014)

Images taken in Burley, New Forest. October 2014.

It was fine all morning on Sunday.  Yet as soon as we left the house it started to rain!  The weather has a habit of changing like that at the moment, especially around the time of the school run each day and I often find myself standing in the playground with no coat or umbrella in the middle of a downpour.  You’d think I’d have learnt by now!

But a bit of rain wasn’t going to stop us heading to the New Forest for our Sunday afternoon stroll.  Although the same grassy paths we’d walked down a few weeks ago had now turned to mud. The little one had lots of fun squelching and splashing through the muddy puddles and looking out for fungi.  He’s very good at spotting them, maybe because he’s closer to the ground than the rest of us!

I don’t think we’ll ever tire of our afternoons in the New Forest and there are so many parts of it we haven’t explored yet.  I have a feeling Burley will always be one of our favourite spots though.
