It really is Summer

Despite all the awful weather we've been having we did actually get some sun this weekend. 

Yesterday we woke up to dull grey skies and showers on and off. We managed to dodge one when we popped into town in the morning. The day didn't seem promising at all......

But as we finished our delicious roast chicken mid afternoon the sun really came out and the clouds started to get fewer and further between. Lovely S suggested we jump in the car and drive 20 minutes to one of our favourite walks. 

I'm sure I've posted about this walk before as it is very local to where we used to live in Oxfordshire. It's an old railway that has now been turned into a lovely walkway through the countryside. I love doing this walk as you really get to see the changing seasons. 

Little F fell asleep in the car on the way there and slept for a while in his pushchair. But when he woke he loved it. It's perfect for him at he moment as he is still a little wobbly on his feet so the flatness of the path is a great place for him to practice his walking. Plus there is so much to see. 

He loved looking down at the animals in the fields below. 

He was particularly keen on the cows which he declared he wanted to kiss! We did a lot of mooing sounds to say hello to the cows. 

I'm just hoping we have more sunshine like this so we can get out and about and enjoy the lovely countryside that we have so close to us. What have you been doing this weekend? Did the sun shine for you?

Our Sunday here was pretty much like that too, weatherwise. Very sunny after lunch time.
The place you had your walk is really gorgeous. xx
