As part of our recent promise to get out of the house more often, we decided to venture out on Saturday to Thatcham Lakes.
With Jack secured to Trevor by carrier, we headed off to feed the ducks. Unlike many who think that feeding them bread is sensible (which it is NOT) we took along some birdseed which they went crazy for. Jack loved the ducks, his excitable legs and pop-out eyes suggested so. Although, I’m not sure he was overly fond of the huge one which got a bit too close, even I didn’t liked him.
We took to the Seasonal Trail around the lake’s perimeter which took us about an hour so that Jack could see the ducks and take in the scenery. Are 23-week olds too young to take in the sights, sounds and smells? He seemed to be enjoying himself, regardless.
As a City girl, I get a bit trigger happy when it comes to the great outdoors and all things green. Trevor and Jack would walk on ahead whilst I was busy trying to perfect my shots in Auto mode before running along to catch-up. I somehow managed to take over 400 shots in the space of an hour but have been kind enough to only post 8 of them.
It was really nice to get out after what had been a very tough week for me. Trevor took my hand whilst we walked the trail and we talked for what seemed like the first time in ages. Usually, we are so busy at home with Jack and household chores that we rarely get to sit down and chat these days. I think we’ll make this a regular thing, it did us all good.
