I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

Accomplished #2
 did your weekend go?  Did you achieve all that you desired.

We ticked off all but one item on our list.  Fitting a bike ride in is always a tricky one for us, but I will keep persisting and adding it on my 'Bucket Lists' until we actually get to do one as I love going out on my bike.

So this is what we did ::

Saturday was the walk in the rain followed by movie and popcorn night.  The walk wasn't strictly 'in the rain' more in between the rain as when it came down it absolutely lashed it down.  So we waited for a break and nipped out for an hour.  Some may say we were fortunate enough to be back home, just as it started again.

Sunday we went to Macclesfield Forest from the Leather's Smithy end, ticking off another two and a bit things we wanted to do.  Adventure further afield and take in a view, which was Tegg's Nose...from a different view making us exclaim - we've climbed that!

The 'bit' was butterflies.  One was found on our walk and one in the back garden.  Not quite what I had in mind, but if you take a look at the picture below the 'search for butterflies' is a work in progress.

I think come this Friday (with the Summer holidays and all) I will probably make 'week long' bucket lists rather than a huge one for the Summer.  That way (I feel) we will achieve more with less pressure to be out all the time - as us parents do - with maximum enjoyment.

It's going to be fun.
