Spectacular Sunday

The last couple of days have been wonderful, it's amazing how much the sunshine can affect your life. Today was no exception. Andrew asked if I wanted to go for a walk, so we set off to the Squirrel Hide in Adgestone. The woods were blanketed with Bluebells. There were no squirrels about which was a shame as Andrew really wanted to see them.
We walked to Alverstone and then carried on to Langbridge. Andrew had the brilliant idea of walking to the Garlic Farm for lunch. I've never been before & was quite impressed. We sat outside in the garden with a bottle of Magners Pear Cider each and ate a 'sharing platter' of crusty bread, Isle of Wight blue cheese, salad & home made pear & rhubarb chutney. Now me & Andrew don't usually drink so the cider went straight to our heads lol. We must have spent a good 10 minutes giggling as we paid the bill and walked around the shop. We bought a clove of garlic & a jar of chutney and walked home.

We walked back the way we came and called in at the squirrel hide again. I'm so glad we did as one of the squirrels came down to feed :O)
