Walnut picking!

We went picking walnuts for the first time ever! It was so exciting.

There were hundreds on the ground and on the tree. I haven't captured them on camera because I was way too busy picking :)


Aren't they lovely :)



Walking to find more trees. Googs found a ripe pear that had fallen off a tree.



After filling our bags, oh we could have picked so many more, we went for a walk.

The children were looking at a school of tiny fish


One thing I didn't mention was that walnuts stain your hands, big time!!! One of the mums was very organised and brought us all some gloves to wear. I still managed to stain my fingers :P I looked like I had some kind of fake tan disaster :)
