a slow walk

Sometimes the simple things in life really are the best. We are lucky as we live right next to a lake - and if we follow the lake round we get to Vinterviken - maybe a good place to go right now as the Nobel Prize winners are being announced - as it is in Vinterviken that Alfred Nobel had his factory.

We though had ideas to go for a long walk - but there was just so much to do and see that we kept getting side-tracked and in the end went to Aspudden Park instead (I shared that on the Parks and Play in Stockholm page).

We took a mini electric fan with us to see what we could do with autumn leaves - working out the difference between dry leaves and wet leaves, big leaves and small leaves - and leaves with long stalks and short stalks - it all makes a difference you know.

The sculpture with wood caught our eye - although Michael was a little disappointed that he couldn't crawl into it - he was just a little too big to get through that opnening!!

Hoping there are lots more sunny autumn days left before winter comes. The great thing about sunny autumn days is that you slow down... you notice things, hear things and have the time to stuff conkers and other treasures in your pockets.
