Yesterday we spent a few hours down by the river in our village :) It's such a lovely way to spend some time, great fun playing in the water, and some parts next the river are nice and shaded. We popped to the supermarket this morning to get some picnic supplies, then we packed up some chairs and the food, and the dog. and headed down :) We only live a 5 minute walk from the river, so we just wandered down. It's gets really busy down there, and parking is limited, so it's not worth trying to find a space. We started off by having some food :)
The ducks enjoyed the bread the kids kept throwing at them - I think the ducks ate more of the bread than the kids did! Then it was time for a splash around in the water.
It was soooo cold to start with! But you get used to it after a while and it is nice and refreshing. There are fields on the other side of the river, so you have a lovely view.
The doggy had a good time too, even though she hates water. She always stays away from the waters edge!
And to finish the trip off, it is obligatory to get one of these bad boys....
We had a lovely time :) I hope you are enjoying your sunny weekend too.
