As the weather was so nice, David and I thought we'd make the most of it and combine a bit of a drive with a nice walk. We ended up at Stourhead, which is on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. I thought you might like to see some photos which may tempt you to visit if you're down this way :)

The Gatehouse



Wandering down to the lake



A woody glade - which is your favourite? I took two and Gibbo took one and we can't decide!!







The Lake







Looks like Happyman's got competition :)



We also went to Castle Combe..a nice place for a drink on a Sunday afternoon :p

great pics, Lynn! Castle Combe is an evocative name for CAR readers from the 70s/80s, as there's a test track near by where they did all their testing. I must go there one day :)

cheers!

Great pics :cool:

Stourhead is lovely.

Pic 2 is great with the couple walking and the foliage of the tree over them.

Is there a hostelry called the Lamb Inn at Castle Combe..... I'm sure we stayed there many years ago.

You obviously had a great day :thumbs:

Love the light / colour on the 2nd pic - what you shooting with ?
I have an Olympus Mju 500 - just a compact 5.0mp digital.

I'm sure there is, GJ, but we were drinking at the Castle Hotel. There was another pub opposite, but I can't remember what it was called.

lynn i think you need to get a job with he west country tourist board:cool:
Thanks Al :)


PS - Scudetto - if you ever head down to Castle Combe, Gibbo and I would love to meet you for a drink :)
