A Spring Walk

Last week when the weather was pretending it was spring, a couple of the kids and I headed out to a nearby park for some fresh air. We are fortunate enough to live within 3 miles of two great nature parks. 

We went with the excuse that we needed to check on our letterbox. We also attempted (with mixed luck) to find some other letterboxes. What's that? Don't know about letterboxing? Check this link here. You'll find information about what letterboxing is, and clues for letterboxes hidden (hopefully) in your area.

We did find some letterboxes, and took ours in for maintenance (it was missing a pen and some other strategic parts). 

While we were out, we enjoyed seeing some wildlife. 

I suspect that much of our area looked like our walk in the woods before the farmers came and cleared the land.


  1. Thanks for the inspiring spring photos, we are still buried under piles of snow and mud. Have thought about trying letter boxing before, it sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. What a lovely, peaceful series of photos. It's still chilly here, but sunny and just lovely. I love this time of year!

  3. Lovely photos Lona. Swans (?)a swimming?
    I never heard of Letterboxing - sounds like something I could set up for my grandchildren when they explore the farm on their summer visits. Thanks for the link!
