A Rainy Autumn Walk

Today was wet! Really wet! But we had a city nature walk planned with a few other families from our homeschooling group so off we went!

The park had massive puddles, much to Hannah's delight -

and she picked up some sweet chestnuts to take home for the season table.

 In the cemetary there were lots of squirrels getting ready for winter. Hannah and her friends had a lovely time feeding them peanuts.

This one kept coming back for more

Then running off into a tree

to eat his snack!

We also found a lot of mushrooms and toadstools. Hannah is really interested in fungi and likes to identify as many as she can. We think the one above is a Shaggy Parasol

It was a good day despite the weather!

Looks great! We must get out in the weather more - too much festering in front of screens lately!

Looks like a great day, despite the wetness (or maybe because of it!)
