Winter Weekend Walks #countrykids

So this weekend moors-daddy was off work and we knew we needed to get the boys out.
The weather on Saturday was rain and more rain, though somehow Beanie managed a golf lesson during a break in the clouds! 
So today, Sunday, we made the decision to go for a walk, boys and dog in tow. As we strapped ourselves into the car the heavens opened. We carried on regardless, wellies and coats, hats and gloves!

We ventured out towards Postbridge and to Bellever Forest. We arrived to blue skies having left the rain back at home!
The boys stood for a picture, ready for our walk. 


We started off at the car park (pay and display) and headed off towards the track. It was quite dark in amongst the trees. 


A photographers dream area. Loads of opportunities to take pictures and as always wishing I'd brought the Canon and not just my iPhone. But I started snapping away anyway!




As always my boys find the puddles, walking and splashing their way through!



And remarkably the dog didn't venture into the water. (Or the kids for that matter!)

We returned home late. Moors daddy deciding to go the scenic route home. A closed road, a diversion and an hour later we made it back (via the fish and chip shop).
