Hiking and cooking

We have been trying to get back into the habit of walking most days again and one of the great advantages of our new home is that we can walk straight out of the back of the property onto a series of trails that are nice and secluded but quite challenging. You either are walking  up or down with very little flat areas it is also covered in gravel which makes them slippy under foot.

Part of the route goes through the trees and most days we pass this little chap on his daily stroll, he is clearly on the same fitness gig that we are on. Also at the bottom of one of the hills is this river, the girls were so happy to see it and had a lot of fun cooling down and splashing about.

Given the hot and humid weather here in Georgia we arrived back dripping wet and pretty tired even though it’s just three miles. Given that we have done more than 25 miles on day hikes before I guess we need to just keep going and get more used to it.

Back home in our back garden we have this great tree, the trunk is really smooth and as you can see it has  great blossom I think it is a Grape Myrtle.

Today I decided to felt some more soaps, three of them are covered with some merino that I had left over  and one with some alpaca, the dark green one is the alpaca one.

Rob shredded the last of our zucchini this afternoon and I made a zucchini loaf and a zucchini chocolate bundt cake.

Now I just need to stop Rob from eating them all at once. Although I guess I should be flattered that he likes my cooking that much
