Nature Walk...

We went for a lovely evening nature walk a couple of day ago, at a local wetlands preserve.

We saw butterfly bush in bloom....


Explored an area that in the winter is 6-10 feet under water (it's a retention basin)...




Enjoyed a view of the river/creek...


Admired some wildflowers and blackberries....






The trail on the way out...


The kids also tried an activity from Keepers of the Earth. Each found a quiet spot, a little out of the way, and simply sat in peace for a while. I stayed on a bench not too far away, and enjoyed my moments of peace! Just what I needed. And we'll be repeating this activity a few times... the kids said it was "lovely", "refreshing", and "marvelous".
