If you go down to the woods today ...

... you may see a determined scrapbooker on her mission to tick as many scavenger hunt photos as she can.  It was a beautiful morning here in my corner of the UK and so I dragged my husband ,suggested to my husband that it might be nice to take a trip out to Hatfield Forest. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful and historic place right on our doorstep - well, 10 minutes down the road!  My husband couldn't believe we were seeking another photo , enthusiastically encouraged me to find a worthy photo for the category 'A forest'. 
When you think of how many people visit Hatfield Forest daily, these must be the best fed ducks in Britain!
Whilst strolling in the sunshine, the husband said 'Look, you can tick two boxes in one go if you take a photo of that '

A 'wooden bridge' in 'a forest'.  Are there extra points for combining categories I wonder?
and then he got all educational on me and started pointing out the different types of tree (once a boy scout, always a boy scout) and insisted I take a photo of an oak tree as historically that is typical of a British forest.
So there we go, 'A Forest' - officially found!
PS Good job we went this morning, as it is now 2pm and it's pouring down with rain.  Gotta love British weather eh?!

Well done Debs - we went to Covent Garden yesterday as I was sure there would be a pirate or a unicyclist or something to tick off the list - no luck but we did find a stall selling fake Cath Kidstone bags and purses so we left happy girls!

Lovely photos :). I'm a sucker for forests and bridges so this one is just perfect in my book. Funny how they pretend they're not interested, isn't it?

You know what ... I just had a thought, one of the items on the scavenger hunt is the team portrait ... obviously you are working as a team so I hope he is preapared for that one!

I love the shot of the bridge in the woods!

I can't believe how enthusiastic my family has been getting too - in fact they have already asked if I think Rinda will come up with a new list for next year!

Your wooden bridge in the forest is just beautiful - it looks so peaceful
