A Walk in The Park in Autumn

Inspired by the Center Parcs November challenge we went for a walk to the local park. It was our first visit as we have only just moved here. I’m sure we will be going there again and again. We picked the perfect Autumn day, sunny and (mostly) dry.

As we walked to the park we took in the sights of Autumn all around us.

When we arrived at the playground, the littlies had loads of fun. It felt strange to me as I recognised the park instantly even though I’d believed I’d not been there before. When I was little my Dad would take me to a park every Saturday afternoon, we would visit lots of different parks but this one had been my favourite because it had a Helter Skelter. Sadly the Helter Skelter must have been long gone, but there were many features that I remembered, even the little car park where my dad used to park his Robin Reliant. Today the playground is fresh and new with lots for the littlies to play on, and as there were so few children there (just one other little girl and her mum) there was no waiting for swings and things.

After playtime we went on a forage for leaves and things that reminded us of Autumn. The children had fun running through the leaves that had fallen off the trees. We also found acorns but I told them to leave them for the squirrels to store for winter. There were a few conkers too and pine cones.

When we left the park we decided to visit the old church before heading home. It truly is a scene from the past and this weekend we are going back there for an old fashioned Christmas craft fayre.

Finally, we headed off home, but there will still things to see, like a bonfire on the allotments and trees filled with red berries, and tons and tons of leaves to walk through.

    What a wonderful walk, it's the simple pleasures which the children enjoy more isn't it? It just goes to show that time is all they really want from us. Great leaf collection photos.
