winter walking

A sort of new year's resolution, not set in stone or anything, was to walk more often because we have gotten out of the habit of walking.  We decided a grey, possibly rainy day was not a good enough excuse to stay indoors all day

Do we look cheery in the cold?  And look at all those other walkers with good intentions!  It's surprising how many people you bump into on January beach walks.  Maybe we're all starting to feel a little claustrophobic.

Well the children are always cheery once we get out, and always find something to do

jumping rivers is always fun

and we even managed to drag a teen out with us.  Now I'm glad we forced ourselves, because sometimes it really is a case of forcing ourselves it only takes one or two dissenters to weaken our resolve.  The last couple of days have been truly horrible weather but it's nice to use them to do some indoor things, maybe even some education!!!


  1. Good views you've got there :-)

    I agree, it just takes a couple of moaners to make it feel soooo difficult, but once they're out, it's difficult to get them back in!

  2. I love it when we eventually drag ourselves out and everyone really enjoys it! looks lovely despite the greyness!


  3. How nice once you are out isn't it? It's just getting out that's the problem! looks quite cold though, glad you were wrapped up!

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to drag herself out in the winter! It was very cold that day.
