The day after our anniversary, we decided to catch up on sleep and miss the hotel breakfast.
Once we was finally up, my partner headed out to bring us back a Subway brunch and I started packing up our things.
Once we’d eaten, we waved a sad goodbye to the beautiful Brooklands Hotel and headed to nearby Brooklands Community Park.
The day started off surprisingly warm and pleasant for October, so we spent quite a while wandering around the park and sat on a bench by the water.
Everything was so peaceful and calm. The only sign of the upcoming storm was the unusual looking sun, but more on that later.
After a lovely start to the day, we jumped in the car and drove to the town of Esher.
We’d been to Garsons Farm before for fruit picking last summer, but this was our first ever time pumpkin picking.
The pumpkin patch.
Despite a warm start, the sky soon started to look unusual.
The sun red.
And the winds started blowing.
Hurricane Ophelia which mainly affected our neighbours Ireland, brought dust and desert sand over the UK making the sun and sky look the way it did.
But we didn’t let a hurricane deter us.
We picked carrots and sweetcorn.
As well as our own sunflowers and dahlias.
Then after a day in the fields, we looked at all the Christmas bits in the farm shop.
Before warming up with some tea and cake in the cafe.
After a fun day outside and an amazing weekend away, it was time to head back home.
