It has been a good several weeks since we have gone on a country walk. At first it started with choosing to go kayaking instead as the end of summer was approaching. However, in the last few weeks we have been so busy that we have not been able to schedule in one of our favourite pastimes. It is our favourite reason for choosing to live on the outskirts of Bath where country meets town. Being able to just walk outside of our house to go on a country walk is a simple pleasure we all enjoy. So this Saturday, Ryan made sure we fit in a country walk even if it was getting closer to evening. It was our goal to end up on Solsbury Hill to watch the sunset. We saw cows, sheep, and a pair of each of the following animals: horses, deer, and rabbits. The boys collected their first round up of conkers for the 2013 autumn season, to play against each other back at home. Then we watched the sun go down as we made our way to to the top of Solsbury Hill, where we got to see all the twinkling lights of the towns down below. It was our first evening hike and a great one to start off the season here in England. I really hope then when we find our new place to live in the coming months it is close enough to the country so we can continue this favourite weekend ritual of our expat life.
