We’ve been having exptemrely nice and cosy weekends lately. This despite us both having to fight off colds again. The colds are just hat colds. Very irritating but harmless other than the constant sniffling that goes on.
So this weekend we decided not to go for the run/cycle routine. We went to the dunes and forrest area not far from home and went for a long walk.
At times we were following the beaten track (read the signposts) Other times we ended up just going down a path that looked interesting. This has its risks. All of a sudden we stood in front of the car again. This was not as we intended it to be, hence set off again.
We walked, we talked and we had fun. The things you see. People hanging off trees, mushrooms in all sizes and shapes. Wonderful colours as winter is slowly setting in.
The things your don’t see like little roots buried in the sand. You never knew about them until you nearly fall over headlong forward.
This time of year I missed so much when living in Auckland. This is nature going to sleep and I love it. My SO saw it and told me that I looked like I was ready to explode with happiness. As if I was too happy to really fit into my skin. And he was right.
