Redwood Forest

I've been working a lot of overtime at work, which was okay a lot of the time because  January and February were pretty miserable. But then there was this sunny day and I desperately wanted to go to the beach. But I worked all morning and by the time we got in the car to go to the beach there was NO ROOM at the inn. Like, never even in summer has the beach been that busy.

 So we headed to Redwood Park in Surrey instead. And went for a lovely walk through the forest.

 I can't remember the story exactly. But there were two brothers who wanted to live in a treehouse. So they built one.
 And then they planted all kinds of trees - kind of like a a museum of trees.

 So as you walk through the forest there are plaques on them explaining what they are, where they're from and stuff like that.

 And there are meadows for picnicking and running around.

 Lizzie and I both went snap happy.

 AND THEN we happened upon a fairy village!

 I couldn't do it justice, but there's got to be a hundred little houses - many of them set up by elementary school students. Hidden in the trees, on the trees, under the trees...

And then David had a nap.
