The Woods of England

Trying to find somewhere to settle in England meant staying at various places everywhere. We stayed in Oxford; an area called Surrey; and in the very heart of London in a suburb called Hammersmith. One town we stayed in was called Battle because there was a huge battle there in 1066. It was called the Battle of Hastings make sure you watch out for my blog post about it!

When we were staying in Battle we stayed at this really cool place called the Shooting Box where we had a brilliant view of horses, dogs, squirrels, rabbits, deer, hills and even amazing jet planes. It had 4 stories and could fit 9 people!

We found an awesome walking track into the woods. In order to get there we had to walk along a very narrow road and find the entrance gate. We looked at the map wondering where the gate was located and my Dad went for a run down the road to locate it. I looked around and realised that the gate was actually behind us. My mum, my brother, my sister and I climbed up an embankment to the gate and waited until my Dad came jogging back, exhausted, and we jumped out showed him the gate! We climbed over and found ourselves in a field with a family of friendly alpacas, which came up to us and we patted them and fed them apples. They were really cute!  Afterwards, we kept walking through some more fields and finally came to the WOODS!! In the woods, the trees blocked out a lot of the sun so it was quite dark and we journeyed through in hopes of finding some deer. Suddenly we heard rustling though the trees and thought it was deer, but we were talking too loud and the rustling stopped.

Luckily, however, the next morning, I was looking out the window and saw some “weird looking cows” and then realizing they were deer! There were about 10 and my Brother got a really good photo of them.

We also saw some deer in a place called Churt. We were staying in a place called Woodpecker Cottage we went for another “walk in the woods” and came to a clearing with deer! And also when we were staying in a place called Stanford Lodge in Surry deer came right up to our rent house at dusk! I think we were pretty lucky with deer.
