Off out on our expedition, hoping to spot a really good example of a smiley stone to bring home.
Many were picked up and inspected.
Some were too heavy.
Some - not the real thing.
Others not inspirational enough so we ended up stoneless.
We did, however, spot other stone spotters' creations.
Ah ha! There's a smiley face at the bottom of this tower - pity it's too large to carry home. He seemed to be enjoying his job so we left him to it.
After stone spotting we did a bit of butterfly spotting.
These bushes are covered with tortoiseshell butterflies.
We did spot some more stones before we headed back. These led to a very special place.
It's a good job I collected a few flowers for Samboo.

And these stones ...
... led us to a little lane which ended up where our walk began.
