After being cooped up in the house for so long we thought the best way to celebrate our return to normal would be a trip to Batsford Arboretum to see the autumn colours. Of course nothing is guaranteed when it comes to nature, so quite a few of the trees were still rather green. That was no problem though – the fresh air and good company were enough for us.
Although there was a slight drizzle when we arrived, we decided to enjoy a few hot drinks in the cafe and before long the sun arrived. We took a leisurely stroll around the arboretum, enjoying the changing leaves and various points of interest.
We were all a bit unfit after having not gone on a walk for so long, so lunch was a welcome break. Everyone was happy to be back as a group though, and lots of friendships were made or rekindled. We’re looking forward to our next walk at Stratford on the 3rd!
