On the Gruffalo Trail

This weekend we took a trip to Westonbirt Arboretum, a woodland with more than 2500 different trees set across 17 miles of accessible paths. The forest is currently also hosting the Gruffalo Trail to celebrate the children’s book’s 15th anniversary, and as Becky is a big fan of the story,  we decided to check it out.

With the forecast snow a no show, we donned our wellies as it was very muddy and explored the old trees and botanical highlights. Becky had lots of fun following in Gruffalo’s footsteps and making his acquaintance (in the form of a large wooden sculpture).

Below are just a few pics from our day.

Aha! Oho! Here he is!
The obligatory family selfie.
Me and John sans kids - very rare snapshot indeed.
