In search of Winnie the Pooh

This weekend mummy, daddy and I met up with my Auntie Els and Uncle Lee and took a trip to Ashdown Forest. This is a huge area of forest in East Sussex with a rich history, including being the inspiration for the setting of the Winnie the Pooh stories by A A Milne.

As we hadn’t been before we weren’t really sure where we were going so we parked up near the visitor’s centre and just went for a random walk through the forest. And although we didn’t find Winnie the Pooh we did see some amazing views. Silly mummy had forgotten to charge the camera and couldn’t take any decent pictures, so only got a couple on her phone and they weren’t that great.

Afterwards we went back to their house where Uncle Lee let me share his lunch:-)

We did have a really nice walk and will definitely go back again. On the way back we picked up some maps of the different walks to explore, in particular a Winnie the Pooh inspired one. I’m hoping I’ll meet tigger so we can bounce together:-)

Did you enjoy a nice walk this weekend?

  3. Oh Misaki…this was a weekend for walks here at our house…SHE walked and walked and walked and walked…and of course I went with HER. SHE wore me out. We can’t wait until you go on your next Winnie the Pooh walk and see pictures!

    That looks like lots of fun! I bet Winnie the Poo and friends were hiding and only come out when no one else is around.

  6. Hi Misaki!!! I did take a few walks this weekend but just around my yard as that’s as far as I can go. My Mom walks with me and we sometimes stop for a rest in the grass together. Looks like you had a grand time though!

    Hugs, Sammy

    A walk in the woods AND lunch!?!? Yay! That is definitely a place you’ll want to visit again.

    Love and licks,

  9. Oh you visited the magic forrest of Winnie? How great… maybe you meet that piglet too, bet Bacon would love to hear from a cousin who is a celebrity too :o)

  10. If you meet Winnie and Tigger I sure wanna know! I LOVE Tigger (or I should say, MOM does!) Yep, I walked with my Daddy this weekend, lazy Mama didn’t join us.

  11. Oh we wish we could have gone with you. wag wag wag

  12. Kismet says:

    You had to at least see Eeyore. He’s so big that you couldn’t have missed him.

  13. If you ever find that silly old bear, tell him hello and pass on a hug for Tigger for me! I’m pretty sure Tigger is part boxer.

    My turtles had a nice walk yesterday.

    What a lovely walk. The Ogre often forgets to charge the camera too, I’m thinking of firing her.
