Park by the beach

Will in a jeep this time
 He loves a steering wheel. 

Daughter took myself and Will To Royal Victoria Country Park for an afternoon's walk in the sun. the park is close to where we live, but I have not been there before. It's free to enter, but we did have to pay to park the car.
The grounds are beautiful, loads of lawns with plenty of trees for shade, nice paths through the trees for walking, and the grounds drop to the shore line, where at the entrance is Foley refinery, which you can see in some of my photo's, and further in, the port of Southampton.
We sat and watched all sizes of boats sail by, it was really peaceful, Will fast asleep in his pushchair, the play area was a perfect spot for him to run around and use the last of his energy.
Every where is lovely when the sun shines, but we agreed we should come back with a picnic, and more time to run about.
Hubby lit the BBQ and we ate outside, later watching Chelsea Flower Show, so much beautiful colour.
This morning we have a few errands to do, and then later rest at home, tomorrow we are driving to Somerset, family time and home again on Sunday.


  1. Looks like a lovely place. Have a lovely BH weekend and trip to Somerset on Sunday.

  2. The places I saw here are really wonderful, celebrating a special event like this with the beauty of nature is really cool. When you are in these event locations, there's nothing you can do than to be happy. I really liked it here.

  3. I've always wanted to go to the Chelsea flower show. Its about time I made the effort to go even if it is by myself.

  4. A beautiful place to spend enjoying the sunshine with your grandson.

  5. Beautiful pictures. How lucky to have this nearby.

  6. What a lovely place. It is relaxing to sit and watch boats go by. I am watching Chelsea Flower show on tv. Every year I say I will go but never happens. Maybe next year. Enjoy Somerset.

  7. That looks a lovely park.
    I enjoyed seeing all of your photographs.

    All the best Jan

  8. What a delightful day! Will is growing so fast!

  9. Will is growing up so fast, I bet he's into everything now. Your photos are lovely, it looks like a wonderful place. Hope you're enjoying the weekend catching up with family.

  10. Now there's some memories. When we were in Hampshire I had a good friend who lived in Sholing. A few times when visiting her we had a walk around the RVCP. Nice place.
