SW: Dog where’s my car??Posted: September 22, 2013
Daddy decided not to go out as planned and instead we took a trip to High Beech. High Beech is basically the heart of Epping Forest, its a popular place for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. And legend says it was home to notorious highwayman Dick Turpin.
The only thing is we parked up the car, started walking and then they realised that they didn’t actually know the name of the section of the forest we’d parked by! Mummy had seen a pub nearby but couldn’t remember the name of it. At first it was OK as we followed a fairly straight path and they figured that as long as we returned the same way all would be well. But the path took us down a steep hill and after descending it daddy couldn’t handle the idea of having to walk up it again. He decided to take us on a scenic route to avoid it. As you can guess, it wasn’t long before we were a tiny bit lost. Google Maps didn’t have a clue where we were and it was hard to ask for directions from fellow walkers when you don’t actually know where you need to get to. Oh dog!
After crashing around in the forest for a while my excellent sense of direction eventually brought us back to the car. Sometimes I wonder what they would do without me!
