From Everest to the Alps
Tuesday, November 12, 2013
It's now over a week since the storm, and I thought that all the debris had been cleared. Not so! This is what blocked my way when I walked to meet Grandson from school today.
I managed to get around it, but I was surprised. It was a beautiful afternoon, mild and sunny, such a contrast to yesterday. Instead of going straight home we went for a walk. He's only 6 and has so much energy! We walked for about 2 miles via a circuitous route and bought some late strawberries and blueberries for a treat. We didn't climb Mount Everest today www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
but we did descend it as we made our way from school. Our final few steps, though, were upwards - not quite as severe as the other Mountain. More like the Eiger, but not the north face! As you can see - the sun was heading towards setting
The days are getting shorter - soon there won't be time to walk in daylight after school. We'll make the most of it while we can.
Did you climb a mountain today? Onwards and Upwards was definitely the order of the day - who knows what tomorrow will bring, whatever it is, I'm sure it will keep us on our toes.
