A walk by the river

We decided to pack up our Sunday night walk again and take it somewhere pretty. Nature feeds my soul.

Wild blackberries. We had one each and left the rest for the animals.

Resting on a log bench.

A beaver! I'd never seen one before. At first I thought it was a log floating down the river, but Red Chief spotted its fur (which looks a lot like bark when wet). When it started going against the current we knew it was alive. I wish we could have gotten closer, but we had to be content with this view from the bridge.


  1. What a lovely walk! We played in a field instead of walking--being outside is truly nourishing.

  2. Love nature walks and getting a blackberry along the way.. such a fun outing.. Kids are adorable.
