On Friday, my sister invited the Wee One and I to tag along with her and her husband on a wee drive down the Clyde Valley to New Lanark, since my husband was working. The last time I was there, I was only a few months pregnant so it was nice to be able to take the wee one
It was a windy, but bright day. Typical Scottish September Weekend Weather.
We watched the water wheel go round for ages. There's something relaxing about it.
Then we took a wee(!) walk up to the Falls of Clyde. It's such a pretty, picturesque walk, but when you've got a 2 and 3/4s year old wanting a carry all the time, it's a loooong way up.
We were on the lookout for different birds and animals, and the sign said there were woodpeckers and beavers to be seen. We could hear them, but sadly didn't see anything.
Those stairs may not look steep, but my goodness me, it was some trek up there. Thank goodness for uncle Robert offering to carry the a Wee One.
The noise coming from them is amazing. I love it here in the autumn because the trees are just beginning to change colour but are still full and luscious looking.
There is a higher observation point to the one we stopped at, and if you look very close, you may see a Lesser Spotted Wee One lurking in the trees!
On the way down, the view really is lovely, with the old mills nestled in amongst the trees.
And of course, a visit to the adventure playground couldn't be missed. Although, I think it was more for the big kids benefits...
