It’s not every day you get saved by a monk…

Today Mike, his cousin Matt and I went for a drive into the hills to see what flowers and…mushrooms we could find.  We found loads of flowers and common mushrooms… Only one of us wasn’t happy with the lack of mushrooms on the forest floor.  In one last ditched effort we found a dirt track and took the step path downward toward a more shaded spot in the woods…

Sadly this resulted in getting our vehicle stuck (it’s a 4×4) so it should have handled the steepness but didn’t.  1.5 hours later…

I was flipping rocks as was Matt (to wedge under our tires) when Matt found this monster of a wolf spider.

A single man, dressed in an orange outfit came walking up and asked if we needed help.  We knew he was a monk, as we’d driven past a monastery near the dirt track.  (Note there is also a prison farm in the area!).

He said he could get a tractor and help get us out.  And by golly he did!

There were a few orchids out today, and some daintier flower varieties as well.  I was glad to join the “search” though my reasons were not for spotting mushrooms, however I did use them as an excuse to stop the car a few times ahahaha….
