It was only half a day really. After being out for so long the day before we had a lazy morning so we set out about 10:30 crossed the old, and much more elegant, Severn Bridge and got to Coleford around 12:00. We were planning to have a look round and then find some where out of town to eat our picnic. We couldn't find any shade to park the van in so we went straight back out the way we had come in and head to Clearwell Caves. These aren't natural caves but caves that have been created by man mining for iron ore and ochre. This mining started 4,500 years ago and is still going on today, though they are making a lot more out of tourism now that they do from their mining work. You can find out more about them here http://www.visitforestofdean.co.uk/thedms.aspx?dms=13&venue=1300453

This is the reason we needed shade to park and leave the dogs.

Not a cloud in the sky and temperatures up in the late teens. That was taken by me just pointing the camera at the sky over my head.

Soon it will be broken, I've phoned the vet and Saffy is doing fine, I can pick her up at 4:50 pm. I will be so happy to have her back.
