Half term week one round up!

So first week of Jeff's half term over! Barcelona got cancelled, so we had to entertain ourselves closer to home. On Saturday we went to Stockhill Woods and Priddy Pools. I then worked Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, day off Wednesday and it rained continuously! Thursday, dry'ish, so we explored Cheddar Gorge. Friday walked with friends close to home, along the river Brue. More rain on Saturday, then my 3rd Sunday off of the year and it was dry! we discovered Ebbor Gorge! It was stunning, so I thought I ought to share some extra pics.

Again Ebbor Gorge is only the other side of Wells, near Wookey Hole. We parked up, had copied off a sheet of directions and started on what we thought was a circular route but it wasn't very clear, seemed to be taking us in the opposite direction to where we thought we should be going, so we abandoned the route, headed back to the car and started again. Was worth the extra steps to see this view!

Ebbor Gorge was another very steep, slippery, wet climb. It was busy, a combination of it being a Sunday, start of the half term holiday, it was dry, there was a Halloween event on at Wookey Caves. 

So you couldn't amble up the gorge, it was a steady climb, avoiding those coming down too.

It was worth it, the views from the top were stunning. 
Not a bad picnic spot!

We then stumbled upon this view point, a rocky outcrop up over the gorge.

What a fabulous view.

Most of the walk was through beautiful woodland.

The most beautiful autumn colours...


I did manage to take some photos of the fabulous fungi found along the route.

Although I did feel very rushed, due to the amount of people around.

Still captured a few share worthy shots.

And we got home just before the most torrential downpour, managed to text Sam to bring in the washing (just in time) and then got treated to the most fabulous rainbow. 
A rare Sunday off meant a roast dinner too, the perfect end to a fab day!
