Primeval Medieval Whatever Tyresta National Forest
We're not people who do this kind of thing. We are the people who say "Oh, the kids are just gonna be whining the whole way, why bother, let's wait another fifteen years or so." And lately I've been a little fed up with being those people. So today, drumroll please, we made an Outdoor Excursion.
And it was lovely. It was brilliant and beautiful and I smiled for three hours straight.
We are no amateurs, so the food was a-plenty. Cinnamon rolls, pancakes, coffee and carrots. And more coffee.
And we wandered through a forest so old it's difficult to understand. We saw trees that have been standing since the 17th century. And we laughed and played and whined a little, but mostly we were just a family on an Outdoor Excursion. Then J started giving me long looks when I stopped to photograph every third meter, so you'll just have to take my word for it. It was magnificent, beautiful and it made me very happy. Maybe we are people like this. Or maybe we could be.
Thanks for reading.
