We went for a walk in the woods. A late afternoon after school – just the kids and me. We were back in England and no longer in the Hamptons in the US of A.
A pond marked the entrance to the woods. A lone Water Lily standing proud in the water’s reflections.
The sunlight peeked through the trees casting shadows wherever we looked and wandered.
Ferns blanketed the ground around us. The light played with my children among the trees.
Woods filled with chestnut, hazel, birch and oak trees.
A stream to follow so we would not get lost in these English woods. And splash in.
A stick to guide them through the trees while the sun glittered on the stream.
They told me the fallen trees were now their secret playground.
They wanted to stay and continue climbing the fallen trunks and branches but it was time to head back.
Deer grazed in a field next to nature’s playground.
And as we returned home the deer fled into the woods we had just departed.

Great to see you’re still heading out on family walks now that you’re back in the UK, the countryside looks more familiar too. I’ll miss your photos of the Hamptons though! #countrykids
We’ll be on a lot of outdoors adventures here as well but we’ll definitely miss the Hamptons too!
It must have been such a beautiful and tranquil experience. Finding the deer must have excited the children, or maybe they are used to seeing them where you live! #CountryKIds
My kids just loved climbing on the trees and seeing deer!
Looks very beautiful there, and glad you’re finding gorgeous walks back in the UK now, too. Hope all’s going well and you’re settling back in OK x
How very tranquil and picturesque – a perfect place to explore and enjoy a bit of water and tree play. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon, thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.
How beautiful, a lovely way to spend the afternoon. I’m glad to see you still getting out for your after school adventures, although it must feel very different from the Hamptons. Hope the twins are settling in okay x
