We've just returned from a mini-break at the mountains again. I should confess that
I usually spend this time by the fire crocheting, but they talked me into going on a
walk this time. It was supposed to be a 'short' walk, but that was just to get me out I think ;)
This view was my reward...
Oh, and this one too. They decided the occasion merited a special walk along what
looked like a goat track to me... a track to the very top edge of the waterfall...
This is standing at the edge looking down...
They thought it was hilarious... I loved the look on their faces :)
Then I found another reason to smile... I saw some 'scribblies'.
Have you ever seen these mysterious markings in a tree trunk before?
I've always been fascinated by them.
They reminded me of one of my favourite books as a child, "Nin and the
Scribblies" by Nancy Cato. I don't think it's in print anymore but here are
some pages I've scanned...
Nin discovers some scribbles on the trees while visiting her grandma
and discovers they are made by little creatures who live in the tree and
becomes friends with them.
I know it's silly but it takes me right back to childhood and writing on
trees to see if the 'creatures' will talk to me ;)
Does anyone else remember this book?
Hope you've had a great weekend too :)
