Blog Challenge: Great Adventure #13
You may have noticed that this week's great adventure post is a little later than usual. We usually go on our great adventures at the weekend, but didn't have time last weekend. We didn't have any plans for today, so after Ebony's nap we decided to embark on an adventure.
We went to the canal near our house. It was a sunny day, and there were lots of cyclists and dog walkers about. We saw some sheep and a heron (or a 'dodo'), I can't remember seeing a heron so close before so that was quite exciting. The sheep were equally as exciting because Ebony said "moo" at them many times before realising they weren't cows.
We walked for about a mile and a half, and then turned back and walked the same route home. I spent a lot of the walk saying things like, "Let's stay on the path, not close to the water." and generally shitting myself that Ebony was going to fall in.
I think the highlight of the adventure for Ebony was seeing a barge go past. She waved the whole time it was in sight. Barges move very slowly. The barge passengers consisted of drunk middle aged men.
We used to walk along the canal lots when Ebony was tiny, and I would have her in the carrier. I finally feel that she's at an age where I can let her walk along the canal, so it was nice to revisit that route.
Have you been on any great adventures this week?
