Sometimes we walk to the river down an overgrown path beside the house.
Poppy likes to examine the flora and fauna in some detail, so it takes a little time to get to the river.
Meepster the cat joins us. She’s fond of walks with humans.
You can get across the river at various points. But today it’s high, so we go on.
Little legs need a ride when they get tired.
Not Meepster. She walks the whole way without help.
It’s peaceful down by the river. Time for a sit down and stick games.
Meepster waits patiently while we rest.
This is a good place for a two year old to explore.
Dragonflies rest on the hot granite boulders.
This is the special place we like to explore in detail.
You never know what you will find.
We have the whole place to ourselves.
Meepster is never far from us.
Still pinching ourselves every day at how lucky we are to have found this glorious place to live.
It’s a good place for Poppy to have stored in childhood memories.
