A few minutes past our tree-house is a path that winds through the forest and down onto a little beach.
The walk is so lovely at this time of year. A little bit crisp in the shade of the trees, but always incredibly still, green and quiet.
It is a such a magical place. Hard to believe there are houses nearby nestled into the bush.
After only a few minutes walk, it opens out to our lovely bay.
Autumn is the perfect time for a bare foot stroll - the beach is often empty although a little on the chilly side now for me to be putting my feet in the water. Our little girl doesn't seem to have quite the same cold sensitivities as I though...
We love seeing the ducks, seagulls, and beach-loving dogs. Often we take treats.
On our way home, at the edge of the forest path are some exotic trees; oak, maple, elm and liquid amber. Poppet had a great time gathering up a bunch of beautifully coloured autumn leaves, and together we toted them all home.
I might make her a little foraging bag soon, as she is at the stage where she loves to collect "treasures" on our walks.
I have just the autumn project in mind for the leaves which I will share very soon...
Today was an amazing day. I hope yours was too.
