Day 20 – Winnie-the-Pooh

Kylie had heaps of work to do before we leave tomorrow, so I left her to it.  I have backed up photos, done washing, made lunch etc.  Kylie got tea prepared early so we could go for a walk in the forest.  Tom, Kylie and myself went back to Ashdown Forest, home of Winnie-the-Pooh.  It was lovely walking through the pathways through the paddocks and forest.  We started 5ish.
Poohsticks Bridge
First stop was Pooh carpark where we hiked to Poohsticks bridge, this pace was so tranquil, with the stream/river running and it is so green everywhere.  We had a game of poohsticks of course, why not, we were there!  Tom won the race, I came second and Kylie last, hehehhehehee.  We then walked back to the car and drove to the Piglet carpark and hiked up to the Milne and Shepard Memorial.  This was a site that had lovely views of the forest, it was very windy and it sounded a lot like being at the beach with the waves crashing, quite weird.  Next was Heffalump Trap and Lone Pine, another winday site that had sound of the beach.  We decided to make our way back to the car as we were getting hungry, we went via the Enchanted Place and Roo’s Sandy Pit.  We didn’t have time to get to 100 aker wood and also, couldn’t find Piglet’s place … oh well another time.

Home to tea was the main priority.  Whilst tea was warming I made a batch of GF scones for desert.  So we had Moussaka and salad for mains, scones, jam and Cornish clotted cream for dessert.  Full as a goog now.
