Tradition and our egotistical desrire to show off dictates that visitors to the Barabrith estate must do the woodland tour! This tour varies a bit depending on the seasonal levels of undergrowth. At this time of the year the dreaded brambles are almost gone and so it’s possible to wander in to areas that in the summer are all but inpenetrable without the energetic use of a machete. Whether it is this incentive or not I do not know but our cat Matchka (spelt wrong and incorrectly named I’m told!) decided to come out with us on todays jaunt as we showed our guest around. Seeing as almost all the two legged folk present suffer some level of camera shyness I was left with the cat to photograph, well that’s my excuse.
