Babes in the wood

After toiling at his desk for hours, Big J agreed to go on a walk with me in the afternoon yesterday, the Bank Holiday. The plan was to use one of his new books and follow a trail from that. So, we headed to
The Cat Inn in West Hoathly with the goal of walking through the grounds of Gravetye Manor
which was the home of William Robinson
whose gardens have been featured in this year's Chelsea Flower Show.

From an excellent beginning, things went rapidly down-hill and we found ourselves lost in a forest just before tea, MILES from our car and the village. We broke so many rules, but we did have water with us and a mobile phone. It was however a fantastic few hours of walking in gorgeous surroundings and we had a great time together. There has not been too much of that of late.

Next time we will do a bit more research and maybe it will go better!
