Sundays in my City #71 – Out and About along the Creek

21 Aug

Unknown Mami

Today the sun was shining and it was the perfect day to be out and about.  First stop was to watch girl-child play soccer before heading out to visit friends to help celebrate the 2nd birthday of their daughter.  Of course you would think that with 4 kids running around the yard there would be plenty of photos to take, but taking photos would involve moving from my sunny perch on the deck so sorry, no pics of cute kids happening today.

Once we bid our friends farewell, we thought we would so some exploring in their neck of the woods, an area that we really haven’t explored before.  We found a few geocaches that needed to be found and headed off to find them.  All three of them were along a walking track by a creek, in fact the same creek that we spend hours by in our neighbourhood, the same creek that is flooded and not very creek-like here!

This is how you cross a bridge, right?

Enjoying the view (from the bridge railing!)

Of course with new adventures comes new playgrounds to explore.  The boy folk loved this vomit inducing spinning thing!


As an added bonus, the 3 caches that we set out to find were all found.

 Head over to Unknown Mami and check out some of the adventures others have had during their Sundays in my City.

    Such a pretty place for an afternoon walk. Like you, I don’t like spinny things either. I’m fine keeping my feet on the ground.

    Fun times! Of course, here in Wisconsin many folks pronounce the word creek as crick.

    I know – – – it DOESN’T make sense, but there you have it!

    No that is not how I cross a bridge. That would be the way I would fall off a bridge.

    No more spinning for me neither! 🙂
    Have a good week ahead!

    “Boys will be boys “(and I agree with the “vomit inducing” descriptor). Beautiful spot.

    What an absolutely beautiful place to enjoy.There’s something very magical about a bridge. That’s probably why they are a setting in many stories.

    It’s nice to have little explorers with you when taking in the surroundings.
