Adventure in 100 Acre Woods


I guess everyone is familiar with this massive childrens story, one of the biggest of all time called "Winnie the Pooh".Because that's were we went last monday(may 7,2007) to 100 acre woods located near ashdown forest surrey.Since it is only near to where we live,about 30 minutes drive.It was Susan(hubby's Aunt)who told us about all this.This was the place where A.A.Milne spent his holidays and used to take his son(Christopher Robin) for walks. It is really called 500 acre wood, but for his stories AA Milne called it 100 acre wood..This is A.A.Milne the author of the Winnie the Pooh stories with his son Christopher Robin. This is a postcard I bought from the Pooh's corner shop to share with you all. Before,I never thought that Christopher Robin's character was true. I thought he was only a made up character for kids.I didn't expect it.It was such a privilege for me to see it in real.I was totally amazed,for all those times is still does exist.Such a beautiful historical forest.
This the so called"Pooh's stick Bridge"(was originally built in 1916) where Christopher Robin and his bear(winnie the pooh)used to play poohsticks. Bizarrely we did play poohsticks at the bridge and so did other people.Its actually a fun game not only for kids.Usually tourist or visitors walk about 30 minutes to get to the pooh stick bridge and have to picked sticks on the way through.The more stick you picked the fun the game is.

Christian turn......

My little poser.That's what all he did,waved to people starred at them and pose,lol.He was running around like a mad dog and freaked us out and frightened that he would stumble down into the water.Unlike kath whom enjoyed playing and really had a great time.

Proudly present the"Pooh Corner Shop" where Christopher Robin used to buy his sweeties/candies rather.We went there first and bought our souvenirs.For Christian and Kathleen we bought them a jumper/sweater each,hats and mugs.For me I bought a green mugs,too and some sweeties made by honey and postcards of course.

WOW! great fun... I also thought Christopher Robin was a made up character, that would made it more interesting, even the 100/500 acre woods.

Lingaw kaayo mo tan-awon lalo na si Kath kay makasabot na gyud sa story. Si Christian basta maka lakaw2x tama na sa iya, malipay na na sya. Lalo na daghan mopansin sa iyang ka cute...hahaha malipay gyud.
