A Stroll at Barlaston Downs Banks
What a lovely March we had. Plenty of incentive to get outside with the sun shining brightly and I hadn't visited Barlaston Downs Banks with the kids for a good while, so off we went.
The Downs is the kind of environment they love to explore. A stream to paddle in, hills to climb, sticks and stones to find, flowers to pick (shush, don't tell them they're actually weeds), mud to squelch, stiles to climb; they love it. Although they do worry me when they insist on balancing along the log to cross the stream.
A great morning for taking photos. Here's a selection from our walk:-
