We spent the day with the Bluefunnels, See here how they got their name We gave them a Treasure Trail for Christmas, take a look at the website and they said we could all do it together. We kinda hoped they would say this because it looked really good. It was a Spy Mission type trail - it explains in detail on the website - and was a mostly driving trail in a figure of eight around the Forest of Dean. I managed to get two pictures for the Scavenger hunt at the same time!so here for your delection are
Number 13. A Fence
Number 8. A Tower
The tower looks like a lighthouse. It is in Cinderford and commemorates something but my mind has gone a complete blank so I will need to look it up on Google before I do the page for the album.
Wwe both love being "up in the Forest" and we only mean the Forest of Dean when we say that. I could happily live in any of the towns there and probably a lot of the villages too.
We stopped in Coleford to find clues for the trail and had lunch in Kaplan's cafe restaurant. We can highly recommend it. Mr M and Mrs B had the Roast Dinner and Mrs B said the carrots were cooked to perfection. Mr B had the steak and kidney pudding and chips and declared that he was in heaven. I had plaice and chips which was also perfectly cooked and the fish was really moist and delicious.
All in all a fabulous dday for completing a Treasure Trail and getting two more pictures for the PSH
