A while

There are those friends you don't see for a while. You're all busy; it's fine. You talk occasionally, and it's all good. But when you get to hang out it's like you see each other all the time and nothing's changed since you first met. Those friends are so, so good to see.

We wrapped up and went for a walk as the sun was setting, and it was very good.


Saturday

I think I'm almost done sulking. We walked into town to get some Poutine from Befries and I took some photos. Shock, right?

Sea was so nice and calm today. Love when it's like that.

Found the king of the bins.

Watched these waves crashing a bit. Something about it was very satisfying.

They were doing something with a digger on the beach. Didn't know what. Still don't know what.


Then, the poutine. Been looking forward to this all week, and intrigued by the concept since the Worth it episode, and it did not disappoint. I was a bit apprehensive about cheese curds but they're just like a chewy mozzarella with more flavour so I'm completely into it. We had 3 - regular, topped with kimchi, and topped with stuffing. I love stuffing.

It was super filling, and I don't think I need to eat ever again. Probably will though.


Saturday

Went on another little hike. Ended up doing 12km and Tabitha smashed it!

Found part of the hamlet we were looking for.

And some nice skies over rolling hills.

And some birds.

And some interesting buildings.

And this tree.

And this eerie-looking cloud formation over an empty field.

And this couple who'd had a superglue accident and were on their way to get help.


I like doing these walks at the weekend. I've been slowly changing my habits to be more active overall; a change that has been massively encouraged by the Apple Watch. I don't think I'm losing any weight (I get all obsessive if I start to track that) but I do feel loads better.


Sunday

Started out with a duvet cuddle with a cat who's about to rip my hand off.

Went to Fatto a Mano for Tabitha's 5 ½ birthday (it's a thing!)

Walked the dog on a new route and saw this lovely house.

It finally stopped raining so did a bit of flying (just) before it got too dark.

Ate some excessively sweet cake (conceived by a 5 ½ year-old) consisting of chocolate brownie, vanilla sponge, meringue, butter cream and shards of chocolate (kid loves Bake Off).

And got a nice sunrise on the way to work the following morning.


Water Tower

Saw this water tower. Stands out a bit. Took a couple of photos. End.
