We set out this morning to attempt our family walk through Delamere forest, the weather did not look very favourable but as my older brother will be leaving to travel back to London tomorrow it was our last chance this holiday. We normally go on Christmas day but this year the rain put paid to that.
Anyway, as we got closer to the forest the heavens opened and the rain came down again, though we had umbrellas and boots the wind was driving the rain sideways and there was no way we would be going into the woods as the trails get too slippery 🙂
Undeterred we decided not to go home but instead we drove to Cheshire Oaks ( not a forest unfortunately ) and take a walk around the outlet shops and check out the festive decorations. I saw the tree and just had to take a picture as it was huge.
It was billed as the UK largest Christmas tree and for a small donation to charity you could take a peek inside, so I did 🙂
It was all twinkly and sparkly inside and so I took another picture but it does not do it justice but I still wanted to share it with you.
I tried to record today’s video inside the tree but the noise from the carousel outside made it really difficult for my Dad so we had to move on.
When we left Cheshire Oaks the weather was a lot brighter, the rain had stopped and so we headed back to Delamere forest to see what the paths and trails were like. We parked up and had a great time just walking through the trees and enjoying the quiet stillness of the forest at this time of year. On the way back to the car we stopped and recorded today’s verse.
So here it is and I hope that you enjoy it, don’t forget to leave a comment if you haven’t already. It has been as much fun to read the reaction of all my blog friends to my challenge as it has been to perform it.
