In the morning we set off from the Premier Inn over the hills to a town called Melton Mowbry and bought some pork pies and custard tarts from a shop called Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe.
We had a walk around the town. We found an interesting toy shop and took a photo of me next to a Playmobil policeman.
We also found some Street Art.
This is the shop we went to sculpted into the street art.
Melton Mowbry is famous for PORK PIES!
Then we went to Sherwood Forest visitor centre in Nottinghamshire.
We found a funny looking tree.
We walked around for a bit when we reached The Major Oak we had a picnic of the pork pies and custard tarts.
