January 18, 2015 Applemore, New Forest January 18, 2015/ Annie Spratt If getting our kids out into nature is a search for perfection, or is one more chore, then the belief in perfection and the chore defeats the joy.

And it’s a lot more fun. — Richard Louv A YEAR IN FOOTSTEPSEvery day in 2015 I will go for a walk. No two walks the same, every day somewhere new to discover.
