The skies were grey and the dark clouds were drawing in on us as we headed to Bingley. Not to be deterred we had wrapped up the best we could, and actually were excited about our day out with Wynsors shoes. We had been invited to walk with Wynsors shoes in Bingley to celebrate the launch of their new outdoor range.
The girls were excited and wanted to eat their snack the second we set off, and feed all the ducks and swans along the way. They had been given a very useful bug finder pot and some oats to feed to the ducks.
Our walk took us along the Leeds to Liverpool canal, and although the rain was coming down thick and fast we remained in good spirits as we took in the sights of the canal.
The route we took was not suitable for pushchairs so I had Little Man in a sling. It was a little tricky keeping him dry, and he did keep trying to turn himself around so he could see what was happening, but he loved watching the world go past.
We stood and watched the locks fill and empty and the girls asked questions about how the boats travel. The scenery and views were simply fantastic and I only wish I could have used my proper camera to have captured them.
It was a really beautiful walk and we are planning on returning when the sun is shining to make the most of the spectacular views and watch the canal boats go past. If you would like to go walking on the Canals there is further information available from the Canal and River trust.
This day I love a walk in the rain with Wynsors shoes
