Not the Best......

Since my last post the weather remains very unlike summer...wet and windy. 'Not the best' is putting it very mildly..... 

Last weekend Anne's eighteen month old grandson was brought up by his parents  to visit us. 
The weather was bad throughout the weekend but we were not going to let that dampen our spirits as we were determined to find various things to do..... 

They had all booked into a hotel in Monmouth which is only about six miles from our campsite.... 
On the Saturday we arranged to meet them at  Norchard which is the centre for the Dean Forest Railway. 

Anne's grandson like a lot of youngsters has a real thing about trains so we figured that a couple of hours getting on and off of different trains would be a good way to use up part of the day...

As it was we were able to fill up the Saturday and on the Sunday we were able to manage a walk in the woods as well as yet another train ride at a different location. 

The area here has quite a lot to occupy youngsters so even though we might be asking if this is summer or autumn weather wise we were still able to enjoy ourselves and keep him occupied.

 Just a few images below around the Dean Forest Railway.....

(Talking of images I will be starting to post monochrome photographs again at my Aura of Past Shadows blog from late October onwards.... 
I've posted one of my new monochrome images recently as an introduction... Pop over to the blog and check it out. There is a link in the side bar...)

Yes, the weather has turned and we're moving towards Autumn. We've just come back from a club ride to Weymouth and the weather last Friday was atrocious, which normally you wouldn't have gone out in but we had a 60-mile ride to our stop. Thankfully everyone survived.

@Dave

Club ride to Weymouth sounds good...Was that a return trip? The Dorset coast was my old regular cycling area when we were living in Bournemouth.. We will be back in that area again in October when we stop off at Moreton for three weeks on our way back to Devon.Will you be doing a review of your club ride on your blog?. ?

Yes, a coast to coast. I must do a post.
