Well, I do things like go online and start reading blogs.... so eating my scraped toast as I write...
So the weekend was good. I didn't feel like doing anything specific for the equinox, just took a moment with Nature. Spring arrived here a couple of weeks back so I welcomed her in then.
But we went on a walk with friends which was pleasant. Although, despite the lovely warm weather we've been having, it decided to be dark and it began to rain as we were leaving. I'm still aclimatising (sp?) myself to having a sort of tribe. I'm so accustomed to going it alone. But it's nice.
I hadn't realised how cool it would be so I borrowed a hat. Erm, it was a 2 yr-old's hat. Yes, it fit just right thank you very much. I love not having to maneuver a stroller/pram around.
The place we visited was unusual. It was mentioned that we were going to a national park. Visions of English woodlands entered my head for some bizarre reason. Where we ended up was across the border in Croatia, at a deserted military base turned 'park'.
It all began innocuously enough - bored chick at entrance takes your entry-fee shekels and you park at a designated parking spot.
But a mere minutes into the walk I was like, 'Stephen King film anyone?'
Many abandoned buildings. Odd buildings that obviously had various military purposes. And then in the distance, a group (herd, rabble, mob?) of feral donkeys giving us the evil eye. On our return, they were there to 'greet' us near our cars. Hmmm....
Not another soul to be seen....
Anyway, it was nice to be out in quiet and nature. And with friends who were organised enough to bring hot drinks and cake.
The views back across the bay were stunning as usual.
