I’ve been meaning for ages to take N to Virginia Water. It’s somewhere we used to go as children and I knew it would look beautiful in Autumn.
Of course N moaned. His legs were tired. He wanted his bike and scooter. He was bored.
His two highlights…picking a lot of sweet chestnuts (still to be roasted) and the cascades. I don’t know what it is about waterfalls (even manmade ones), but they’re lovely to sit and watch.
N was enthralled with them, and was happy to sit and watch while I could take lots of photos. He didn’t even moan about me taking photos of him. It’s rare that I get a decent smile, and he just turned round to tell me something he thought was funny here, so it was a proper happy smile of laughter.
