Wilderness in London ~ Country Kids
I do love discovering new to me places and a recent stay at the in laws didn’t disappoint.
Considering I lived with them for a short while and have visited often I was beyond delighted to discover a lovely little wilderness park just across the road from them, perfect for the twins to have a run about and see a bit of nature.
One thing I can’t stand about London now it just how busy and loud it is, I’ve been spoilt by the coastal charms. Yet this park, right in the middle of a busy metropolitan city was perfectly peaceful and just…ahhh lovely, a great reminder that you don’t have to get out of the city to get back to nature.
The boys were excited to see a few different ducks, the King Fisher was a lovely surprise.
Not so nice was the amount of rubbish, why oh why can’t people dispose of things properly?! It really isn’t that difficult.
After running around like loons we stopped to feed the ducks, always a fun way to spend an afternoon.
Ethan may have slipped down the embankment and ended up in the water.
And after scooping him out the river, and making sure he was okay we may have laughed at him.
About this time we decided it would be best to take them home and get him cleaned up, he was taking the whole “getting back to nature” thing a bit too seriously.
