We return to TheBigForest!

Nearly two weeks ago we threw our sleeping bags, a few clothes and lots of chocolate in the back of the camper van and headed out.

We are, as those in the UK will know, on track for the wettest July since records began in 1910 and we thought we would go as far east as we could (east being the dryest part of England) and so we have been pootling round the ancient villages, deserted beaches and old green tracks of rural North Norfolk.

There is so much to blog about, and we will settle down and write about our adventures soon, but to give you a glimpse here is Benjamin, Maker in Chief at TheBigForest, having a paddle on sunny Holkham beach before we scampered over the dunes to explore the pine tree forests.

Yes we are sad to be back, and the ivy had started growing over the door of TheBigForest hut (really, it’s rather scary that nature can take over so quickly) but we are also bursting with new ideas and ready to start some big creative projects that need bears quick of mind and nibble of paw and that is us….now we have been on our holidays.

    What beautiful sky and biscuity sand.

    • Yes, Norfolk is known for its ‘big blue skies’ and they are really spectacular – constantly changing clouds – Ill do a proper post about Holkham soon, miles and miles of sand and beautiful wood raised paths through pine forests. Lovely.
