After Christmas I had a nasty incident with the bathroom scales, and decided I’d better do something about it! So I’ve been taking E out for walks in the buggy – I have even been doing a bit of jogging (ok so the jogging was only downhill, but there are some pretty big hills where I live and pushing her up in the in the buggy was hard enough!) I normally like taking her out on my back in the ergo, its snuggly and less clumsy than pushing a buggy; but in the summer heat its nice to use the buggy, and E likes it when we go fast (well fast is a relative term, my jogging is pretty slow!).
The other day I took the camera out with us to take some snaps of the lovely views where I live. The road skirts a pine forest:
That is the only sealed bit, the rest is gravel. After a killer hill which I didn’t photograph cos I was head down and puffing and wondering how E got so heavy, we go up this gentle hill:
This is the view to our right as we go up it:
Looking back the way we have come, nearly at the top:
E loves her buggy, and likes to sing as we go:
The view on the other side of the hill:
And then down a bit further (and playing with the panorama function on my camera):
As you can see – its quite rural! I think we got passed by two cars in the hour I was out the day I took these snaps. Quite peaceful really.
