Brighton pit-stop

Blew into and out of Brighton today to fetch my son from music school for Christmas.
Was back home in Kenilworth by 2.30pm. Just had time, after I did his washing up, to take a few pics

This is where my son lives....100yds from the seafront!!!!!!!

This has just gone up....I presume for Christmas???

This weeks theme is 'Graceful'.........what do you think

Anyway some different woods today. Light was very poor, and the expected shots of the resident Buzzards didn't materialise........So before they die off...more mushrooms

What about this for tree roots. Entwined in an ancient wall.

Someone has cut out a seat in this root

At last a sunny day

For those of you that are sick of Fungi pics.....I have some more. The good news is, that this will be the last lot. Had a sunny afternoon wandering around Hay wood again. Will be very busy again this week until Wednesday afternoon. so this set will be the last for a few days.

These 2 were taken by the missus with her 4.0mp compact Canon....not bad

These last 2 were the same subject. Used the flash on the second shot, which seems to have had a reverse effect

Whoops here comes the missus.....quick hide Max

Mushroom Woods

Hi all. Took Chris and Max to Hay Wood, Baddesley Clinton this afternoon before the light....what there was of it....went altogether. Another dreadfully dreary day
What a wonderful place. Its owned by the Forestry Commission, and the footpaths are really looked after.
Anyway, will not bore you with a history lesson, but will just post some of the many fungi pics I took.

I've saved the best till last
A real fairy Toadstool, and mushroom city on an old tree stump
