I’m visiting my folks for a few days down in Gloucestershire, but I’ll be back by Wednesday when normal service or what passes for it) will be resumed. In the meantime, I’m near bear country, the Forest of Dean. Not real bears, they’ve been extinct in Britain for centuries, the nearest you get in the Forest is Winnie-the-Pooh – seeing as it was here that A.A. Milne wrote his famous books about the bear of little brain (but surprising common sense).
It’s also a really beautiful place.
If you ever visit, I recomend the open-air sculpture trail as worth walking around! Also handy for some al fresco nookie 😉
