After a windy, wet and miserable Saturday we were very pleased to wake up to blue skies this morning. We weren’t in the mood to venture too far today so we headed 5 minutes down the road to Upton Country Park. We go there a lot in the summer as they have loads of space for picnics plus a water fountain that all the kids love running through.
We haven’t been for a while though, and it’s a great place to go for a walk and blow the cobwebs away as there’s plenty of space to explore.
It was obviously very muddy but Little H was in her element squelching through the mud in her wellies, finding sticks and throwing stones into the stream.
There’s new picnic benches, masses of spaces for the kids to run around, and a bit of the stream is suitable for paddling so we’re definitely looking forward to going back when the weather is warmer.
There’s also great views over to Poole, and what walk in the countryside is complete without a muddy field full of cows!
Hope you have had some out door adventures this weekend!
