♥ Summertime Moments ♥ A Tranquil Evening

Hello Lovelies,
the days are already getting shorter and this year we haven't spent any evenings at the country park.
Yesterday we finally managed a visit, though it was about half past eight when we arrived and the sun was nearly setting...........

It was one of those beautiful still and pleasantly warm evenings. Hardly anybody else was around and it felt so tranquil.......

I loved the clouds reflected in the lake.............

and the golden glow from the setting sun............

We walked around the waters edge..........

To the huge open space where the boys could fly their model planes.

Home made ones you just throw............

and a battery powered one that soars and swoops with a little buzz through the still evening air..........

It's just above the moon.

Sadly the home made one took a heavy landing and got broken.........that shattered the tranquillity for a while.

Time to head to the play park.........just us here too, lovely............

After the boys ( and their dad)  had finished climbing,  sliding and swinging we walked back past the lake.

Where Swans glided gracefully through the dusk...............

By now the lights had come on at the visitor centre and I loved the way they illuminated these Teasels...........

Time to go home.
It was a perfect summers evening and I'm so glad we got outdoors as a family to enjoy it.

  6. I remember those evenings when my children were small. We use to take walks like that. You've really caught the peacefulness of the moment.

  7. It looks like a great evening. I was out for supper with a friend last night, and suddenly realised that the nights are drawing in. x

  8. What a beautiful evening spent by the lake
