The Frosty Forest

Come and take a walk with me!

The temperature here has been below zero at night for the past few nights, which means everything is freezing! The sun is shining at a minimal and the days are pretty short so when the sun does decide to shine – you race outside to catch every possible ray that you can get on your face!

You can’t take me anywhere!

Getting to see the sun rays play with the frost is quite a special kind of magic to witness, just imagine shiny sparkles all over the place! I tried my best to get the feel of it in the photos below.

If you look carefully you can see the cold sitting snug and thick in the air

This is always such a nice spot to sit at and watch all of the people go by, it’s also right above a pond!

And here is the pond! This photo was taken in the afternoon so half of the pond is frozen and the other half is thawed.

No, you are not allowed to swim in there

Alrighty, let’s continue with the walk! Say bye bye to the pond, down the steps and over the bridge we go!

I love this bridge so much!

We were right up those steps checking out the pathways and the pond a few seconds ago!

Now that we are over the bridge we are making our way to a gate, which leads the way to the plains where the sheep live !

Here is another frosty little path over the gate to the planes. Some parts of the forest are thawed since the sun made it’s way to most of it.

As we were walking down here I was scanning the ground for some frozen leaves like this one!

Here is a photo of the plains, it was not taken with this series of photos- it was actually taken last month when we just arrived in Holland.

The plains during autumn – 2018

Here is another photo of the plains on sunnier days in Holland.

Plains at the start of Autumn – 2017.
Yes, you can swim here!

Once we arrive at the plains we turn around and make our way back, on the way back we usually try and say hello to the sheep! Most of the time I have a standoff with the sheep because they seem a little bit judgemental. I’m the one who starts the standoff and I’m always the first one to walk away as it’s not my forest at the end of the day.

What kind of band do you think they are starting?

And so, the walk through the forest slowly comes to an end, by now our noses and our fingertips are frozen!

Almost home

There are all kinds of routes that you can take through this forest, but this one is my favourite!

Thank you for taking a walk with me! I hope that you loved it just as much as I do. We are heading to Spain tomorrow, This is exciting stuff!
