The river walk tale

Yesterday the boy and I decided to take advantage of the Sunday sun and take ourselves off to the River Trent. What was going to be a walk to the local Embankment area ended up being a near-on 4 hour round trip, heading in a direction we hadn't before taken, towards The National Water Sports Centre (where we caught the tail-end of the National Schools' Regatta - very posh!). 

It was lovely to spend time outside together as we hadn't been able to do so for a while (what with the poor weather, lots of revision and my visit back home) and we both really enjoyed the afternoon (despite both suffering from cramped and painful toes by the end of the journey!). Thank you Mr Sun!

What have you all been up to this sunshine-filled Bank Holiday weekend?


  1. Nice to hear of other who have been out making the most of the sunshine, goodness knows how long it will last!
    As always, lovely photos too.

    1. Thank you Danielle! I really should have been revising but I've been so useless at it, and was getting more and more frustrated, that just decided to go for it! As you say, it won't be here forever (in fact, it's been pretty intermittent today unfortunately!!)

      I do hope you've been able to enjoy it


      (p.s - I love Home Improvement too - in fact, I'd say your Top 5 is pretty spot-on!!)

  2. Lovely, what a fab day. Photos are so pretty in the sun xx


    1. Thanks sweetness! It was so nice to get out and warm my shoulders, feels like I haven't done so in such a long time! xx

  3. these pictures are so beautiful xx

    1. Thank you Chloe, that means a lot :) xx


To my fabulous Tori's Tales comment'ers - I cherish each and every comment you take the time to leave me and, because of that, I reply to each and every one in return. If you have a Twitter account, then that's where you'll find me replying (because, let's be honest, I live on Twitter. In Twitter. Around Twitter. Twitter). If you don't then fear not, because a) this means you don't say stuff like the things above and b) I'll find you elsewhere.......
