I thought I would share some photos of one of our walks in the woods.
Such a beautiful still place, lost in time.
We stood for a long time watching the water. Salmon were jumping every 20-30 seconds, catching hovering insects.
The children had great fun playing in the hobbit hole. This wood is great for empowering their imagination for all things magical, and hopefully leaving them with greater respect for untouched places.
A once secret passage of long ago!
The stairway into the cave and the view from beneath the entrance.
It has that feeling of erie cold and the sound of dripping damp. The air is so still yet fresh. It was a dangerous yet beautiful decline down the steep slippery stone cut stairs.
I turned 30 last week. It was a time for quiet reflection.
And later followed by good food shared with interesting people. I am assured that I am still young, but it is an age that frightens me!
