Hello! Oh it feels so good to write to this blog again. I am currently without WIFI and found out today that it won’t be switched on until next week!
I couldn’t keep away until then so here is a quick post with some of our photos and a video from Bosherston Lily Ponds last week.
It is a popular local walk and with all the views and wildlife that we saw it’s easy to see why. Start at the car park in Bosherston. It is free to park at this time of year but we made a donation anyway as all contributions go towards the National Trust and yes, there are toilets at the start of the walk which is always a good thing!
When I was younger I was terrified of walking along the ‘lily pond’ bridges. Thankfully, my kids don’t have the same fears and walked along happily (and sensibly!). As the name suggests, in the Spring and Summer the pond is full of lillies. If you look into the water you can see the sunken lily pads from last year.
We love it when we spot sand on our walks and know that we are getting close to the beach (it’s great to practise long jump too!).
On the beach, the kids got to have a play before heading back on the circular route.
It was a lovely walk. The kids are already planning coming here in the Summer time when we can spend all day playing on the beach and paddling on the river.
As you can see the walk tired one little girl out! Please watch the video if only to spot the cute robin- he loved being filmed!
The weather is cold but dry and sunny at the moment- perfect for more #countrykids adventures!
