Good Afternoon friends.
Well there is nothing new to show you on my worktop because we have been in the New Forest for a few days. It was OH's elderly uncle's 92 birthday and he wanted us to go down for a party, so we combined it with a few days camping and we only got home at lunchtime.
Instead I will share this little chap with you.
He was gorgeous and wandering all over the road with his mum, as were these.
but then that is the beauty of the New Forest. So many lovely animals with absolute priority everywhere. Just wonderful.
Now I will do as much visiting as I can to other desks via the lady Julia.  Come with me if you don't know what this is all about and nosey you way around lots of lovely crafty desktops.

I've never visited the New Forest Chris, but I'd love to one day.
I've been traveling the globe but there's so many places near to home now that I'd like to visit. It's on my list.
Happy Belated Birthday wishes to the Birthday 'Boy' ;D
Loved the photos too so thanks for sharing
Happy WOYWW to you

I love the New Forest and used to go there a lot when we still lived in England. Congrats to the 92 yr old too, that's no mean feat in itself! I've picked a simple, slightly fitted ribbed jumper to knit as a first big project but I'm really worried about gauge and size! I hope it's wearable when it's done!

I don't think I've ever been to the New Forest, in fact I am sure not... how wonderful that the animals have right of way. Helen 3

Gotta smile, don'tcha? I love how they meander across the road and for the most part people don't get crazy being held up. Same with flocks of sheep. Looks like a fab break and reminds me how much we've enjoyed the New Forrest in past trips. Might be time for a re-visit :)

Happy WOYWW! a little late

love the donkey! I also love the open range appeal of the New Forest! Lots of places up in Montana, Wyoming etc are total open range and animals rule! Thanks for visiting my desk last week. Just got home from the war and posted some more pictures if you are interested. Vickie #75
