We recently escaped to POD’s Grandparents, affectionately known as Baba and Gagam, for a few days. Having had the best time at Felixstowe beach paddling, looking for shells and making sandcastles, the following day was spent in the forest.
Like the Alice Holt forest we regularly visit, High Lodge in Thetford Forest is managed by the Forestry Commission.
POD headed off to explore the play area almost as soon as we arrived.
It wasn’t long before she was running around in an excitable fashion scaling everything in sight.
Even testing out the more challenging climbs that were perhaps a little too big for her!
We were lucky to stumble across The Gruffalo. POD did the trail at Alice Holt a few weeks back so she was happy to do a great impression of “oh help, oh no it’s a Gruffalo”. This mainly involved running round in circles waving her arms in the air. The Gruffalo did get a cuddle though.
