Last Thursday, Jack took me to one of the most beautiful places I think I've ever been. Virginia Water. Located just 6 miles from Windsor town center, this beautifully man made lake and surrounding park is well worth the visit if you're in the area!
We spent a good few hours walking around the grounds and taking in all the idyllic, autumnal surroundings, searching for mushrooms and we even found a squirrel! Cue a very excited Maisie making squealing sounds. It's so peaceful here and as cliche as this sounds, there were a handful of times where I felt overwhelmed with great big, mushy waves of happiness and honestly, minus the fact that it was freezing and the sun decided to perform a disappearing act, I didn't want to leave.
We walked for miles and miles and got lost at a few points too, but none the less it was a great day! There are a couple for houses scattered throughout the grounds and I'm so unbelievably jealous of whoever is lucky enough to own them!
How gorgeous is this waterfall? Imagine having that as a water feature in your back garden!
There were so many people walking their dogs, we even saw a woman with around seven German Shepard's(just in case you were wondering, yes, she looked incredibly badass), one of which was still a puppy and ohemgeeeee, I wanted to pet them all! I did manage to pet a cute little scruffy pup, which then ended in what I can only assume was a 2ft tall child cursing me for touching his dog..
Sadly, we did have to leave and so off we trotted to the car park ticket machine, only to find ourselves 10p short! Sure, we had plenty of 5p coins but oh yeah, that's right, no ticket machine in the history of ever takes 5p coins do they?! Luckily, there were a couple of people about so I approached a lovely gent, who surprise surprise was walking his dog, to ask him if he had a 10p coin in exchange for our two 5p's, slightly embarrassing really, but hey, if you don't ask, you don't get!
I already can't wait to go back here, especially in the spring/summer time when it's a bit warmer and less wet for a little picnic! I could take #ootd's here for the rest of my blogging life and not run out of backdrops! Have you visited Virginia Water before? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know!
