The Beauty of the Woodland

On Sunday, after the small one had woken from her afternoon nap, we went for a walk at a nearby reserve. I’m not a great fan of walking as a pass time, but my opportunities for exercise are currently limited  so off we went. And I’m so glad we did because it gave me the opportunity to slow down and open my eyes, look around me, at the ground and above my head. It’s nice to be reminded of  life beyond my own existence!

The woodland was beautiful. Green is such an undervalued colour! We took a camera and a foraging pocket book and just enjoyed our surroundings. A wood is an incredibly serene place considering the sheer amount of life it sustains.

And of course, a pram is not ideal for negotiating narrow muddy paths, steep tracks, steps or stiles, so the small one was happily worn on my back in the Melkaj where she was comfortably carried for 2 hours. How else would we be able to share the pleasue of these places with her?

Stiles? No problem!

We really enjoyed our walk, I’m looking forward to returning, especially in the autumn when the leaves will be turning…
