We're going on a Bear Hunt

I fondly remember reading that book to my girls when they were young.
Just lately, we've not had much of a chance to do anything together much but we did manage a walk up to Elvaston Castle. We mainly went to look at the old church and graveyard there. I'm so glad it's in walking distance of our house.
Along the way, we met these two beauties
 the babies were terrified of the horses
 on the rickety bridge 
(it's no longer rickety though)
 I ♥ tree roots
 Secret passage to the church
 creepy trees

it's a great place to visit if you are in Derbyshire ;-)
