Ruby and I went for a cycle over to the Attenborough Nature Reserve today. This is the first time we’ve attempted this, but with Ruby getting taller and having a bigger bike I thought it was about time we went a little further.
The nature reserve is absolutely wonderful. If you haven’t been, then you really should. It’s an old gravel pit that has been repurposed for wildlife, and it has some lovely lakes and surrounding countryside.
There is one tree near the Nature Centre that is great for climbing, so Ruby decided to stop here for a few minutes. Up she went, like a monkey.
There was a time when I’d have had to climb up after her to get her down, but she’s much more assured on the branches now.
Here’s the colour version of Ruby’s photo, plus one of the tree.
