Last summer we visited the Beatrix Potter Attraction in the Lake District where Peter Rabbit and his friends came to life.  This week, it was Winnie the Pooh country.  The quaint town of Hartfield, East Sussex is home to the Pooh Corner Shop and Piglet's Tearoom

You don't spell it. You feel it. --Pooh

The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually.  --Eeyore

After wandering through the shop and a bite to eat in the tea room, my friend and I drove a little way to stroll through the Ashdown Forest and find the Pooh Sticks Bridge.

You know Pooh.  I think it may be time for a game of pooh sticks. --Christopher Robin
Oh bother. --Pooh

Pooh Sticks
1. Select a stick and show it to your competitor and make sure you are clear which stick is whose.
2. Check which way the stream is flowing and face the stream upstream.
3. Choose someone to start the game, he is the Starter.
4.All competitors stand side by side facing 'upstream'.
5. Each one hold his/her stick at arms length over the stream.
6. Starter must cal "Ready-Steady-Go!" and all competitors  drop (and not throw) their sticks in the water simultaneously.
7.At this point all the players must cross to the downstream side of the stream
8. Look over the edge for the sticks to emerge.

My friend and I dropping our sticks.  Do you know what we found on the other side of the bridge? Our sticks emerged intertwined.  It was a tie and the sweetest thing to see our sticks joined together like friends!

Can you believe I did this little jaunt without my kids?  I promised to take them sometime soon.

Have you wandered the Ashdown Forest or played Pooh Sticks on a bridge?
