Yesterday the Met Office forecast rain.
In fact they gave out an “extreme weather warning” for north west England.
So naturally we decided to go for a walk, not forgetting our sunglasses and Factor 50 suntan lotion, happy in the knowledge that the Met Office are always and utterly completely wrong.
Only this time they were right.
I know. Random or what!
Grizedale forest in the rain.
It’s very beautiful
But somehow I don’t think the children were thinking beautiful thoughts as we
frogmarched them enjoyed a jolly family walk around the trail.
Not sure why they didn’t enjoy it. There was even a giant hedgehog sculpture to admire
Even a rousing chorus of “raindrops on roses” from me didn’t cheer them up.
Nor did my suggestion, (as we sloshed our way down a forest path that was now a 5″ deep fast flowing forest river,) that they could tell their friends they’d been ghyll scrambling.
We’re thinking the south of Spain might be a nice option for next year’s holiday 🙂
