Well – if we could get Mr. D. to do so, we’d probably all feel better.
Two hours of walking, hiking, and looking will have to do. Thank you, paterfamilias, for taking Ms. E. to a birthday party and dropping her off, then voluntarily taking the lad for his two hours of exercise.
They explored Kin Beach (not far from home) and apparently had a grand old time. Not very adventurous but lots of fun. And wonderfully therapeutic.
Both heavy muscle exercise and time spent in nature have a calming effect on our little lad so these types of walks are especially good. He’s been doing 2 hour walks since before his third birthday – he really does love to explore and move.
Father tried to take a photo of the sunshine. Not our sunshine. Sunshine far away on the mainland. We remember sunshine. Sorta. Warmish, right? Vancouver Island in Winter – not warmish, right? Sigh.
