A Day Out At Dunham

Yesterday, my family and I decided to take a trip out to Dunham Massey, an estate owned by the National Trust. These past few months going for walks has become a family favourite of ours, and something we tend to do at weekends when my Dad's not working and we can all spend time together. I may have been there before as I think my parents mentioned taking my brother and I there when we were younger to look for conkers, but for me it was like seeing it for the very first time.

The estate isn't as big as other ones owned by the National Trust, but it was more busy than any other National Trust owned property I'd been to. You can definitely see evidence of the UK's most recent extreme weather, with the entire grounds being one big bog. Not a good day to wear brand new docs (annoyed face). Within 3 hours we'd seen the majority of the grounds.

The wind was a bit nippy and whilst wrapped up warm, it was still nice to retreat back to the car and go home to a gorgeous hot chocolate (yummmm).

Here's a few pictures I took whilst there...

What have you been up to lately?

    I use a Canon Eos 600D with a 50mm 1.4 lens & I edit them with GIMP and I always make them smaller so the width is 810 and the height 540 or 608 depending on if they are vertical or horizontal :) xx

    1. Ahhh right - thanks :) I use Gimp too! You should post a tutorial on your blog!
