Robin Proposes

My best attempts to get this photo diary running on “real time” aren’t working.  The latest break in service was due to a lack of a reliable internet service from my ISP.  That means that images are still being posted about two weeks late!  Please bear with me… all the entries for all the days do exist… but  rather than swamp you with two weeks worth of pictures in one go I’m uploading several images each day until I manage to catch up.  So use the ‘previous’ link to ensure you don’t miss any!

Today’s theme – May Day Bank Holiday Weekend.

28 April – Edwinstowe
We are visiting a friend in Ravenshead (between Nottingham and Mansfield) for the bank holiday weekend.  Today we did a five and a half mile walk in the Sherwood Forest / Edwinstowe area.  I came across thris (relatively) new statue in Edwinstowe – Robin Hood proposing to Maid Marion.  Legend has it that the parish church in Edwinstowe is ‘church in the woods’ where Robin married Marion.
