Walk Two Hundred and Ninety-Three – Jumping in puddles

puddles
Rain, rain, rain all day. I tempted Xavier out for a walk with the prospect of all those puddles to jump in. So up to the Bluebell Wood and back. The water running down the track was like a miniature river with whirlpools, eddies, falls and backwaters. Xavier was a giant striding through the water and a walking bridge straddling the river.

Earlier in the day, before our walk, we were taking Tom to the cinema and Xavier excitedly pointed out a ‘car shop’. He then thought a little and said ‘Mummy when you buy a car from a car shop, how do you take it home?’

I love these 'soggy' ones. I guess you'll be looking forward to some sun.

I think this one is simply splendid Julie. Love the comp and the little splash of yellow is inspired.

How much was down to you and who much was God looking over your shoulder and helping with a few drips here and there?
