Out to the Sika Trail

Sunday 20th September 2015

It was a lovely afternoon again so I thought we’d take a trip out the Sika Trail in Wareham Forest.

Heading out along the Sika Trail

The view over the golf course was very nice today.

Here’s Max peering out between the slats of a bench.

We followed the Sika Trail round until Jez decided to turn off the main path and cut through one of the smaller tracks.

We eventually joined up with the main track again though, and the dogs found some water to cool down in.

I managed to get a couple of really nice photos of Jez before we continued on our way.

A bit further on and Max had to get in on the act too.

As usual we ended up at the Gruffalo Pool. Here’s Jez watching some people approaching us over the bridge. Notice the clumps of Sulpher Tuft fungi near her feet.

And here’s Max in the Pool.

After that we headed back up past the logpiles…

… and on up the hill towards the car.

And one last autumnal scene for you today: of the bracken dying back.

Autumn is coming

A year ago today

We went for a walk on Upton Heath, but Max had a poorly knee, so I put a heat pad on it to try and ease it.
