Yesterday was Liam’s birthday – my baby’s now 17!! And getting taller than me! He is growing into a thoughtful, caring young man, and I’m so lucky and blessed to have him in my life.
Oh what a surprise! Lego ...
Instead of going out for a birthday meal, Liam decided to go for a walk instead. And I’m so glad he did. He and Gordon took me on a route I’ve never been on, even though it starts just 10 minutes up the road from us. I always assumed that area was just a golf course; but no, it encompasses an extremely large area, not just for golfers, but for walkers too. Neil used to take the boys on this route when they were younger – we’ve lived here for just over 19 years, and I had no idea … ah well.
Tree roots ... like the land's network of veins
Looking back up the way we'd just walked
There's even a pond!
Her chicks were hiding
Moorhen and chicks
There’s so much more to this area that the boys haven’t discovered; as we were walking, they pointed out other possible routes. We’ve decided that we will venture forth, on ‘free’ days when the weather’s nice, and explore as much as we can.
