Buggy friendly walk
WALK REPORT: 27th April 2016
My friend Carolyn S invited me to try out this route with her and her little one. I am always on the lookout for good buggy walks so was more than willing! We couldn’t have chosen a better morning in terms of the weather: the sun shone the whole time, even the parasol made an appearance 🙂 And the true test of a good buggy walk: did baby fall asleep? Yes he did!
Not mine, he talked all the way, but as he is fast approaching 3 years old his buggy days are probably coming to an end very soon, sob sob….. He was much better behaved than on the windfarm walk Carolyn and I did together a few weeks ago, but he did still get bored very quickly and kept asking when we were going back to the car. Some snacks kept him occupied for a while but I have to admit to myself that he just doesn’t enjoy being in the buggy nowadays, he needs more stimulation than that. I reckon I’ll need to pack the buggy away soon and let him toddle along with me, sticking to short child friendly routes when he is with me.
What I have come to realise and love about the Irvine Valley is their paths network – you can literally walk all the way from Hurlford to Loudoun Hill and not need to go near a main road at any point. This new route is a very welcome addition to an already fantastic network of paths in the area!
