Yesterday we had such a nice outing. The sun was shining and the air was freezing cold but calm and still and we decided to catch the bus just along the road to Cuckmere Haven, a really pretty place for walking. Here is Apple sitting on the fence.
It was really super to be in the great outdoors after all the rain that we’ve had recently. I felt very refreshed, and so wonderful to have the glow of the sun on my face.
This walk is really a good idea if you have small children because there’s a good path all the way along from the road nearly to the sea – it is perfect for prams and scooters and bikes, maybe even roller skates. The path follows the river along to meet the sea, so it does get a bit stony when you get to the beach which is tricky on wheels. We got cut off by a really big puddle before we got that far though as I wasn’t wearing appropriate country walk footwear really, but we found an alternative path which took us along another scenic way and to see some sheep. Rose enjoyed baa-ing at the sheep and splashing in puddles. But then she fell in a puddle and got her bottom very wet which meant we had to take her clothes off which she was really not pleased with us about. Luckily we had a dry snowsuit to put her in but really really luckily we had a packet of chocolate digestives in the bag. Saved by the biscuit!
Also this weekend I found a great massive pair of knitting needles to go with my massive wool from last weekend’s shopping trip. I think there might be a big knit project coming up soon.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some winter sun where you are. Keep warm friends.
