Forest of Dean!

We got back last night from a weekend camping in the Forest of Dean. Apart from a few clouds, we had good weather. We took the bikes this time and did a 2.2 mile ride out to Symonds Yat Rock which has stunnings views down through the Wye valley. Here are some photos Rob took.

Yesterday morning we thought we'd have a go at mountain boarding and had such a laugh! Mountain boards are like over sized skatebords with tyres and places to strap your feet in. As it was a spur of the moment thing we all had on quite decent, new-ish clothes which ended up with lots of grass stains!! Luckily they have come out in the wash! Here are some pics of us on the boards and our bums!!

Tip: If you are trying for the first time, be prepared to spend a lot of time on your bum, back or knees!! It's something we will definately do as a family again. The aches I have today were worth it!!
