Today, I decided that it had been a long time since I’d gone anywhere green. My mental health would definitely benefit from some fresh air and vibrant wildlife.
After a quick google of local country parks I found one about twenty minutes away that I had never heard of before.
Before long I was arriving at one of the little car parks next to this intriguing venue. It had an activity playground next to it which was bustling with families and a sweet little cafe advertising cakes and such like.
Seeing several possible walkways I chose one to explore and was soon crossing a cute bridge over a very sunny lake. Fishermen and women sat nestled in small nooks scattered around the edge of the lake. Meanwhile parents led children around a trail, in search of certain animals.
Just over the little bridge was a bird watcher’s cabin which gave us closer access to some waterside sights. Despite being a stone’s throw away from a busy playground, everything was calm and tranquil.
Some lovely benches were placed at intervals around the two beautiful lakes. Some of then were engraved with messages to loved ones no longer with us. Being a favourite spot for local fishers, there was even a large wooden carving of a fish in the middle of the park.
This was a short post to celebrate my first nature walk in months. I look forward to more days out this summer.
