These boots were made for hiking

We are living on the edge of a National Park and one that is an area with numerous footpaths and trails. We decided that is something that we want to take advantage of and enjoy. It seems that a favourite pastime here is hiking/walking. That might just be the city we live it.

Yesterday we headed to the store and bought boots. We needed the stability and also something that could handle mud. Miss K was excited to get some that have a bit of pink. "My favourite colour."

We decided to break them in this afternoon with a short hike. It wasn't raining and the sun was out though it wasn't that warm.

About 20 feet down the path and Miss K was ready for a drink and a snack. I convinced her she had to keep walking. She did pick up one rock.

Daddy and J were in the lead. Father and son walking along, setting the pace.

We didn't see much wildlife except for a few slugs. I am not sure that was the wildlife that we were looking for. It was quiet on the path. I love the sound of the water flowing over the rocks. The bridge seemed like a perfect place for a photo.

Miss K took the bridge as yet another opportunity to take a break. She took the rock that she had picked up and seeing the rocks in the creek she threw her rock in to "join its family".

We only were walking for about 40 minutes. We just did a circle and came out to the same parking lot where we left our car.

We broke in our shoes. We did talk about how funny that sounds to buy something and then break it in. This particular area is about a 10 minute drive from our house and there are a number of trails/footpaths so I think we will have to go back and try again. Hopefully Miss K will be able to go at least 50 feet before needing a drink and a snack. She did get a snack when we were finished.
