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!
