Last weekend we needed to get Monkey some new shoes in Banbury and we hadn’t had the opportunity to get outside. So I promised him that once we’d sorted his shoes out we would go for a quick stroll by the Oxford canal.
The Oxford Canal runs through Banbury and it’s something I sadly, take for granted and don’t explore enough. Really need to change that and make more of an effort to go for canal walks this year.
It had to be a quick stroll by the Oxford Canal as we needed to get back home, but Monkey was happy enough walking up and down the paved tow path by the shopping centre. All of the canal boats were moored up so there was no action, but that didn’t seem to bother him at all.
Monkey was happy having races – he’d run up and down the stairs by the car park with Daddy P and see if he could beat me walking along the two path. Sometimes he is really easily pleased. Mummy I’m coming to get you!!
It just goes to show that kids can be amused with simple things. He loved going across the little bridge and back round again.
Walking along, chatting away to Daddy P, just getting a bit of fresh air.
Hiding from Mummy.
Going for a quick stroll by the Oxford Canal on a Sunday afternoon. We will have to do it again soon.
