This is the River Irwell - the pretty part :)
My parents in the middle of the nature :)
And here they are, messing around :)
We wandered further along and eventually stumbled across a mysterious path that led to a train track! In the middle of the countryside! It was really cool! I was totally taken by the awesomeness of it all!
Yaaay, this is the East Lancs Railway line - we went past here on Lee's birthday!
Standing on a train tack - so cool!
And then moments later - a steam train trundles past! Hello everyone! :)
We had no idea that we would find the train tracks today, so it was a real surprise to stumble across them. Both my parents were super excited (my mum took many photos) and it really gave our adventure a real umph! We live so close to the park, so I think that I will be back to watch the trains go by - how much more leisurely can it get! So wonderful to have such great countryside so close to where we live! I feel very blessed. Hoorah! :)
