Over the weekend we took a bit of a long drive to the Botanic Gardens for a lake side picnic and a nature walk. We ended up spending most of the day exploring the gardens and walking the Children’s Trail which was just lovely. Before heading back we went for an ice cream. Both of my children exhausted but happy fell asleep in the car on the way home.
We packed some of our own snacks and drinks including sandwiches, apples, dried fruit and nuts and water.
My children kept their sunglasses, a shared magnifying glass and some small binoculars in these little messenger bags. I carried two clipboards, paper and pencils for nature journaling in my backpack.
