Attenborough Nature Reserve 2.7 miles walk

It’s the last day of the summer holidays. Yesterday was one of the few wet days we have had, with the sun pepping through today we have been up early exercising. 

Tom started the day with our local junor park run and he managed his best time yet! It was his 10th time and a fab 11.16 minutes. I attempted a small walk/jog around the local area too, nearly 3 miles.

After a spot of lunch and the sun coming out we headed over to Attenborough for a gentle walk.

We took the Skylark Nature Trail around the east side of the reserve.

Tom decided to bring his scooter and we headed north towards the train line. 

There were boats put on the lake  and lots of lovely blackcurrants everywhere along the route.

The path was ideal for scootering. We walked past a field with sheep, goats and lamas.

Love our selfies.

There was some beautiful  properties across the other side of the river Trent.

Walking back to the centre.

Pretty snapdragons.

We headed back to the centre to finish the 2.7 mile stroll. 

Our last naughtiness of the summer  a quick stop for tea and cake.

It’s the second visit we have taken to Attenborough and I really don’t understand the love affair people have with the area. It’s nice enough, and I love water, but it just doesn’t give me any buzz. Such a shame as it’s a lovely flat area for walking. Who knows we may go back again.

The weather was kind today at 21°C

Not as busy as I was expecting for a Sunday afternoon stroll,  but the cafe was full outside.

We arrived home and Phil cooked a nice Sunday dinner.

With the sun still shining, let’s not let the evening finish without putting on the chimenea. 

We have been truely blessed with such a sunny, fun filled Summer. Love my boys x
