photoblog image Bradgate Park - 8/10

Bradgate Park - 8/10

I have featured Bradgate Park, near Leicester, before but not the southern end at the village of Newtown Linford.  We took a walk there with the grandchildren in early April and this series will give you an idea how lovely it is, and different from the northern end.

Which way, this way! 

I rather liked this shot of people passing and pushing the children along.  The lady on the left is of course Maureen and the little girl she is pushing on the bike is our Granddaughter Lauren who will be 3 years old next week.

Granma-powered trikes...neat!

How many MPG can one expect to get out of these new-tech vehicles, Brian?

[grin]
Brian Walbey: Not many MPG with Maureens bad hips Ray, she was "cream-crackered" by the time we got back to the car.
what a lovely shot
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Kavita.
Gender colours
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard.

This must be the busy time of the day Brian
Brian Walbey: At weekends any time of the day is busy at Bradgate Chris, but it is so big that there is plenty of room for all.

Maureen looks like she's in heaven, Brian! Those push bikes (which we do not have in America) make all the sense in the world to me. I love them.
Brian Walbey: Maureen was worn out by the time we got back to the car Ginnie. Lauren hasn't learnt how to steer the bike which made it harder. I'm surprised you haven't got bikes like this in the states, Laureen's is based on her favourite cartoon character here http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4108489606455259906#

Just who is wearing out who smile
Brian Walbey: Definitely maureen was the one worn out Tony, and how!
Wow! Brilliant timing Brian!!
I love the obvious difference between the boy and girl design on the bikes. The rural setting in the background looks gorgeous!
Brian Walbey: I will admit to seeing this shot coming Marion, and yes the parkland is lovely.

Well seen, Brian. Like you, I was attracted by the passing people. I get Lauren gets hopelessly spoilt by you both! Are you both her childminders whilst the parents work?
Brian Walbey: For once I saw a shot in advance and got ready for it Alan. Lauren is spoilt by us as is her elder brother who was eleswhere. We do child mind at odd times, both parents work shifts so we cover if an extra one comes along.
We don't have grandchildren so I'm a bit envioussmile
Brian Walbey: Hopefully you will one day Bill, they can be a drain on the pocket though smile
A nice weekend stroll, although the driving habits look a bit continental smile
Brian Walbey: It's the people on bikes that are the problem John, it is ideal for taking young children out away from main roads.
Nice timing Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Michael.
A great day in the park for a stroll, lovely shot Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda.
Hello Maureen. Interesting shot of "every which way is right".
Brian Walbey: Just for a change I saw this one coming Sheila.
The trikes are new to me Brian..What a great idea for the toddlers...Nice one.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, the handle allows one to keep control of the toddler so they don't pedal off.

Great candid photo
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
nice, the colours we choose for the kids early to reinforce those things that we try to de-emphasize when they get older.. smile

nice day out shot.. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob.
looks like a head on was narrowly avoided there, w ehave one of these for the grandson, they are great fun, nice shot
Brian Walbey: The trouble is one tends to end up pushing rather than the grandchild pedalling Derek.
Funny!
Brian Walbey: Not often I see a shot like this, mind you iIwas keeping my eye on my granddaughter.
