Culbin Forest

We decided to make a packed lunch and take ourselves off for a long walk with the boys and Koby yesterday. We ended up in Culbin Forest. We have never been here before but we certainly will come again. We followed the hill 99 route as it said it was a nice easy route for beginners. But oh boy was it hard, wyndy, up hill, down hill and all over the place. It didnt help that my newly washed trainers seemed to have shrunk in the washing machine.

Anyway, enough moaning, lol, The forest it's self was gorgous. All wide paths that were open and bright and lots to see. The boys were fascinated by all the fungi that we saw in many different shapes and colours. They have fungi identification walks here so hopefully we will get to go on one soon. The boys were looking for the smurf's and told funny smurf stories all the way round.

here are a few pics

There was a large look out tower about half way round but i didnt go up, i was looking after the dog!!! Keith took a few shots from the top.

I handed the camera over to Daniel as i was carrying the bags and the dog at one point and he took some nice pics of the forest itself.

We are really loving going out and about with the new pooch and seeing our local sites.

That's it for now as off to bath the boys and sort my college stuff out as i am out for the day tomorrow for a day of shopping with Keith tomorrow, a rare treat
