A Winter Walk

Yesterday it stopped raining!!! It must have been the first dry day for about a month, so we took advantage of it and headed out for a blustery walk!

First stop was the playground as Hannah was very keen to play outside for a while!

snack time

 The playground and park were deserted but for a few hardy dog walkers.

We walked down the lanes under a bleak, wintery looking sky which was actually very beautiful. Hannah loved the bare branches silhouetted against the sky.

We passed some very soggy ponies - their field ran along side the Hermitage Stream and was so, so wet.

So many of the fields are flooded here!

We walked out over the railway line and towards the shore and Hannah spotted lots of wild rabbits and birds as we walked.

On the way home she discovered some Silver Birch trees - they are her favourite trees so that made her really happy!

Hello! I have just read back through all your posts I have missed and feel like I have had a good chat and caught up with you all! (Wow, I thought our 6am start on Christmas day was early!) It does feel as though it has rained for so long now, our ponies field resembles aswamp too, ugh.
Sending lots of love to you all

Looks like a great day for a walk despite the wet weather. Beats what we are dealing with which is 10 inches of snow:)
