Alderley Edge

One of my favourite local walks is in Alderley Edge in nearby Cheshire. A delightful walk through the woods, stopping to play on the woodland assault course on the way, leads up to Stormy Point with fantastic views over the Cheshire Plains. The Podlings love to play in The Devil's Grave, which is an artificial gash in the rocks and part of an old shallow mine working that may have yielded copper. We finished our walk with a (rather chilly) picnic of hot chocolate and cakes in the woods. A wonderful afternoon with my favourite people. Days like this are what I live for!

Emma's shoe after she came off the log and ended up in the mud. That sock will never be white again!

Alex is learning new skills...

...he wants us to walk him everywhere at the moment!

We ended our lovely walk with hot chocolate and cakes in the woods. It was the first time Alex was able to properly join us on the picnic blanket. He liked having access to the food!

I did bring baby biscuits for Alex, but he preferred to steal his own snacks! Here he is munching on a fruit puff he stole from Tom!
