20-02-09 '100 Acres'

After a quiet morning at home,settling Storm into her new environment, we decided to head out for an afternoon expedition to '100 Acres'. Storm seems to really be enjoying the walks & doesn't seem to mind the car travel either. As it turns out 100 Acres is one of the main access paths into Bere Forest, which takes up a huge part of Hampshire.
We found the most amazing forest scene...like something out of Lord Of The Rings & all the Fairy tales ever told. I can see how authors in the past & present have been moved to write these wonderful tales around forest scenes. It is so inspiring. You could just sit there for hours and have it feel like mintues only.
We found a great low ropes play area for the kids (& us, of course) and Storm had a wonder around, off lead, close to our side. She seems to really enjoy the freedom dogs have here. As long as you carry poop bags & clean up after your dogs they are welcome in most places....all parks (unlike Australia)...in fact, they are encouraged. It's a dogs life here...so to speak. I Took my Care Bear for a visit & Clover Bear (given to me by little Natalie when I left Jimboomba Childcare)...they were very at home near the birth place of Winnie The Pooh.
We will be returning to 100 Acres on Sunday for a picnic lunch...didn't have nearly enough time today 'cos we left it a little late. So beautiful!
