We could so easily have stayed in a warm house and had hot chocolate! But we decided to get the boots on and go for a walk at Haddo in spite of the grey sky and the damp weather. We were glad we did.
Apart from the beauty of the trees, all at a different stage of shedding their leaves, we had fun watching the antics of the red squirrels. I don’t know if they were feeling bold because of the great camouflage of the leaves on the ground but they were a lot more visible than normal. And almost cheeky in their willingness to be seen zooming up trees and keeking out from the branches above, before running up to the next level.
And not to be outdone – we had the hot chocolate on our return home!
