No Monkey Forrest

Met up with boat crews Ray and Diane, Gordon and Dot, Phil and Lynne in the Royal Exchange for a bevvy and a laugh with tea afterwards in Weatherspoons. 

We had a walk around Trentham Monkey Forest  which is a pleasant mile or so around a central lake and gardens with a huge area of secure forest for the apes. We didn't see any monkeys but we did see fairy's and a robin.

Some building's are dilapidated.

But the gardens are well kept.

This was the grand entrance to Trentham Hall and is to be restored to be included in a planned 5 star hotel

Perseus with the head of Medusa by the lake.

Afterwards Sue wanted to do some Asian shopping so we drove to Pak Foods near Stoke where she purchased  Chapati and Gram FLOUURR,  Ghee, Somaq and various herbs and spices. 

On the way home we drove through a hail thunderstorm which quickly turned the roads icy white.

I was the skinny runt of a kid in the hat in yesterdays photo. The glasses  wrong footed some, I didn't need them back then.
