We are incredibly lucky to live near a rather lovely spot that could almost be countryside, smack bang in the middle of suburban life. It’s a spot we love to visit, and has the added bonus of having some cows in residence during the summer months. Instead of jumping on the bus to go shopping or into town, we walk via the meadows. It usually takes much longer, involves a fair amount of stopping to blow dandelions (and as you can see that’s a process that involves testing the wind, and making sure seeds go in the right direction) and admire things (I am often commanded to hand over my phone so a small child can take photos of something they’ve spotted) and we like to say hello to the cows.
It’s a 3 mile walk to town and back again so an ice cream (or a dairy free sorbet) is needed to keep us from flagging…We very much love where we live, and it’s perfect for little boys with lots of energy to explore…?
