Today was another beautiful day and I kept seeing posts on FB about welcoming Autumn! The official date for the start of Autumn is September 22nd this year, so lets just make the most of the lovely weather we still have and stop bemoaning the fact that summer is over.
I was looking after Oliver this afternoon so we made the most of our time, and the weather, to take a walk somewhere i haven't been for a long time.
I forget that we have all this beauty right on our doorstep, Clent Hills are a very short distance from us yet we never go there anymore, when I was a young teenager we were there all the time, my boyfriend of the time had a motorbike and bikers used to meet up there most weekends, now there are not so many bikers on the roads and teenagers don't seem to be happy with just a walk anymore.
Clent Hills are now managed by the National Trust but it's free to walk these and it neighbouring Walton Hill. I had forgotten how spectacular the view is from the top, (1,033ft), On a clear day you can see the Black Mountains in Wales.
The stone circle and four stones at the top are the remains of a folly from 1700's
Oliver had fun running around and collecting sticks, as you do.
He had quite a collection of sticks and stones by the time we started for home
It was a lovely afternoon spent with this wonderful little boy.
Until next time
