The colours, the light, the air - it was all very beautiful:
This sign says that the oak tree next to it is "Wilhelm's Oak" - referring to the very same Wilhelm I told you about here and here.
The oak itself is an estimated 350 years old (not all that old for an oak, actually), and was King Wilhelm's spot of preference to lie in wait for any unsuspecting boar that would come his way when he was out here hunting.
We had a particular place in mind for this walk, and on our way there came past an enclosure for boar - nowadays, nobody hunts in these woods anymore, and the boar are there not for the questionable pleasure of shooting them, but to live in peace and be looked at by anyone who walks by and cares to stop and look at them.
You'll see them in all sizes in my next post :-)
