Sunday 3 January 2010
Brilliant day today, the sun is out and the sky is a brilliant blue. We passed by a charming house, and the children’s playground area reminded me of the playground I used to enjoy in my own backyard when I grew up.
In the morning we went for a walk to the river, and from our walk we could see parts of the farm scattered here and there. Also a great view of the mountain.
Finally we reached the river before turning back to return home. We had a little debate down there by the river because I could have sworn I saw a pheasant in the grass down the lane. Giuseppe confirmed that there are pheasants in the area. I changed the lens of the camera to get a close up of the ‘pheasant’ but I was so disappointed to discover it wasn’t a pheasant, but was instead a rusted metal formation in the shape of a bird. Ohhhh
We came back home to enjoy some scrumptious home made pizza, ummmm
In the afternoon we went for a walk to family farm, an absolute visual feast. I had the most fantastic fun there. Eating the fresh mandarins and oranges straight from the tree was a very strong incentive to motivate me to walk up there.
