Mastering the art of tiny local adventures with a tiny human...

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

Now that summer is here and it isn't necessary to be glued to a computer screen like we have been while trying to teach online, SunStars and I have been busy learning to master the art of tiny local adventures with a tiny human.  We were feeling a bit low energy and I got a craving for coffee, so we packed up the little one and headed out to get a buzz.  However, once we were out, we realized how much we enjoyed feeling the fresh air, so SunStars set his GPS for what he thought was a park that he had visited once in the past and liked.  

... cue suspenseful music... 

When we arrived, it didn't look at all the way he remembered it.  Instead of a lovely open field of grass and big trees, it was a series of ball fields and old buildings.  However, we were on a one-way street, so we had to follow it through to escape.  This turned out to be a good thing, as once we looped around, we were discovered a lovely trail bordering a creek, shaded by leafy trees, and with new and exciting things to see around every corner.  There were fishing ponds.  There was marshland.  There was a tiny island that was absolutely swarming with crane-like birds.  

It was magical.  It was relaxing.  It gave me the opportunity to create a lovely wildflower bouquet.  It also provided us with a wonderful place to drink our coffee! 

I love when random wanderings end up turning into small adventures that are rather extraordinary!
