On Sunday, something strange happened in the land of the blue sky and endless sun – the sun disappeared. Here we were, spoiled from weeks on end of endless (strong) sunshine when all of a sudden, it turned cold(ish) and the sun was replaced with dust.
No it wasn’t quite cold enough to break into the winter gear although a certain someone was ready for that …
…but a jacket or sweatshirt suddenly seemed like a good idea.
So without sun and the temperatures down, what is a family to do on another weekend day?
Did you say death march? Well, yes, that’s exactly what we did – we set on foot to the “new” National Park. It’s so new, in fact, that it’s not indicated on my UB map – apparently it just got built less than a year ago and it’s still a bit of a work in progress.
Well, there is no shortage of opportunities for exercising, that’s for sure.
And after running around (to warm up?) and spending our afternoon there, we celebrated with a well-deserved cold treat….
No one. Including ice cream for the kid with food sensitivities. Did I mention we’re starting to try and reintroduce some “off limit” food? Let’s see how this will play out…now excuse me while I dig out my winter gear.
