A Busy Day

Lately Mr A seems to wake up every Saturday and ask Daddy if he is going cycling today.  Most weeks they head down to the riverbank and ride along the riverbank trail and I collect a rather tired wee boy and bike at the end of the run.  Last weekend their bike computer told them they had cycled 8.5km at an average speed of 10k/h, not bad for a 4.5 year old.
Anyway this weekend we decided to try something a bit different.  By some miracle DP managed to fit both his bike and Mr A's in the car so we drove to Pencarrow and the boys went for a cycle ride while Miss M and I went for a nice brisk walk.
Getting the bikes ready to go.

All set in the buggy.

A wee warm up round the carpark.
Here are some of the things Miss M and I spotted along the way.

Pink daisies.
A wee reminder of Scotland.

A view across the harbor

The pathway.

Waves crashing.

A 'monster' bush
When we all got back to the car it was time for a quick picnic lunch and a play at the beach.

What better way to round off an outing like this than to stop for gelato and coffee on the way home.  This might have been a busy day in itself except that when we got home we deiced it was time to do some gardening.  Unfortunately (or fortunately because it was probably too embarrassing to post) I didn't get a before picture of the garden but here is what it looks like now.  Suffice it to say it was a haven for every type of weed imaginable so Mr A and I cleared it almost completely and then prepared it for some new plants.  With Mr A's help we chose some seedlings and a couple of lavender bushes and it is now looking much better.

Now I just need to find the motivation to tackle the rest of the garden as well :-)
