Beautiful Day Out Today!

Today was gorgeous, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, and there was just enough of a breeze to make it wonderful. We decided to walk to Chinese for dinner (delicious) and along the way found wild apple trees (there is an organic farm very close by to these, and they're the same ones they have, just the seeds got sown!), wild pear trees, wild blackberry bushes, and wild plum trees. I cannot wait to show you pics of the food we foraged on the way home.

We even made friends with the miniature ponies that the farm has. We threw them some of the apples, and the white one in particular is a little pig! I swear he tried to knock the other 2 down to get to them and followed us as far as he could actually salivating. Too cute! Once I get access to an internet connection quick enough to upload pics, there will be plenty!

Just now G went to Google Earth and figured out how far we walked to dinner and back. Each way was 3.4 miles!!! And we walked a couple of miles around base today. No wonder my feet are aching, we walked close to 10 miles today! I feel great though, and I even figured out a way to walk so my feet weren't killing me. Today was one of those days where everything just seemed to work out beautifully. Even the things that frustrated us seemed to lead to good things.

And I think we may head out to a pub to catch a drink tonight or tomorrow. Drink to England and the beauty that has opened our eyes here!


  1. I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful day. You definately won't have to go to the gym tonight. Can't wait to see you.

  2. I love a day that gives me enough exercise etc just by the things I do normally during the day. I'm glad too that you are enjoying these last few days in England! (Remember to stock up on all the beauty products you can't get at home!)

    Safe travels,
