Spring is the new summer here in the UK and for the past few years we’ve had better weather in April than we have for the rest of the year. Come July and August the flood warnings will come out, but for now we’re happily forgetting to put sun lotion on, eating charred burgers and dreaming of beer gardens.
Of course it’s causing havoc for those who rely on seasons being as they should, but I am quite selfishly enjoying the sun and temperatures hitting 20C.
So as last weekend was delightful we decided to go for a ‘stroll’ on the Sunday. We debated going down Eccy Road and through all the parks but that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted to get out, out of town, away from all the hustle and bustle and into the countryside.
So, there’s not a great deal for me to say about our day out…. apart from;
a) It was round the reservoirs at Ladybower
b) It was a 6 mile long walk
c) It took us about 2 hours at a leisurely pace
d) I was glad to find clean toilets half way through the walk and
e) My legs hurt by the end of it.
Now a photographer I am not, but I took a few snaps and thought someone might like to see them!
Sheep and adorable lambs
Old phone box
Duckling (trust me, it is)
Is it wrong that the lambs made me feel a little peckish?
