I do love an unscheduled day; the kind where you end up traipsing around, walking pathways you’ve only glanced at before, trying something new and just enjoying the lost art of doing nothing much, but still ending the day on a high.
This week we had several of these types of day, here’s the highlights of one.
Our local park has a random rocky area, which proved handy for the boys to clamber over and slide down.
I made a new friend, I so wanted to keep him, not sure his owner would be happy but oh my gosh….those ears!
The boys were in their element. Climbing, sliding and throwing rocks to see them shatter…perfect for wasting away an afternoon.
A bunch of trees had been cut down and the smell of sawdust was lush, I was wondering where the wood ended up, would have been excellent for my woodturning projects!
The exposed root system on this tree is amazing, and their butts after this scootching were filthy!
We got a lovely injection of colour from the flowers dotted around the park.
It seems this was the day of the week when running ahead was necessary, just how many shots do I have to get of their cheeky butts before I get a lovely shot of their gorgeous faces?
We had an impromptu game of hide and seek, which they totally suck at!
I love this little abandoned building, so forlorn yet sturdy.
We found a pathway which we had yet to explore, so up the steps and along the pathway we went until we ended up at a poxy golf club, grrrr!
Back down we went until we ended up along a little lane which I just love, it’s left to just do its own thing.
There were a few signs of autumn along the way, eeek!
Heading back through town the boys were crazy impressed with this tree. This part of the trunk of a live tree, which is in a cemetery, just to make it even weirder.
This lonesome yet beautiful Poppy really made me smile.
Ahren was much more impressed with his donut than any Poppy.
All in all it was a wonderful day outdoors, no plans, no agenda just pootling along and appreciating what our town has to offer.
