As I have a few days off work, and therefore have more time at my disposal than usual, I thought I'd post up the pictures of the weekend's Wood-related excitements.
All in the heart of the Wiltshire/Dorset borders area. Lovely.
It was a glorious day, which meant that we wandered around for a couple of hours in perfect autumn sunshine, not too much mud underfoot, and the relaxing sound of chainsaws all around us.
So. This is where we were:
There were lots of people doing stuff in the woods:
Making great stuff out of, well, wood.
There were some scary bits of wood-gripping machinery.
Also many people bodging, making chair legs, dibbers, rounders bats and other such long thin things.
We saw the Great Bustard Project people, which is where I met the dog who I voted "Most Likely To Win A Horseshoe Bat Look-Alike Contest".
And when I scooched down to take his picture he got really excited and jumped up to say hello, letting out the most evil smelling fart I have ever been unfortunate enough to encounter. Bastard.
There were a lot of people doing stuff with willow. Animals:
And coffins. I am getting one of these*. Bloody great idea.
And, just to demonstrate my juvenile and reprehensible mindset, this made me laugh quite a lot:
A grand day out. There was even a stand selling toasted sandwiches which were really excellent. If Manuel wants to do a review, I can recommend the cheese, ham and pineapple without reservation.
If you are in the area next year, go along.
*For after I die, not just as a talking point. Or to sleep in.
