The run up to Christmas left very little time for outdoor aventures and I started to feel like I was developing cabin fever. Time to switch off, stretch my legs and breathe plenty of fresh air always pushes a reset button in my head. Without it, I end up feeling like a coiled spring. Thankfully we had one free day before Christmas kicked off, so we headed to the forest.
Mornings are the best time to visit. Partly because low light looks amazing through the trees and partly because getting up for an adventure puts a fire in my belly. This sort of day and holidays are the only time I willingly spring out of bed.

Chocolate and satsumas for mid-walk snacks. Came home with more satsumas than chocolates — they were only really there to make the bag look healthier.
There is a steep line of trees (8th photo) I try and find when walking this route but I only seem to find it when taking the wrong path! Annoying but also a nice suprise when I eventually find it again.
We only walked for a couple of hours but it was enough time to blow away the cobwebs. Heads reset in time for Christmas — mission accomplished.
