Hiking



The weather has cooled down now and I am so looking forward to more hikes.  We haven't really gotten back to hiking regularly since the super typhoon that hit us a while back.  There were trees that had fallen that were blocking the trails. We had to climb over the felled trees, go around, or try to go under the branches in one of the trails that we did.  That was two weeks ago.  I think by now,  though, most of the trails would have been cleared.

I love it that we don't have to go far to get on a hiking trail.  Right next to where we live is one. Five minutes away from the kids' primary school is one.  A few minutes away from their current school is another.  There are plenty within the city and many more further afield (but still less than an hour away).

We get gorgeous views from some parts of the trails.  We get some not-so-welcome "companions" sometimes (hello, wild boars!).  Most of the time when we pass other hikers, everybody nods or says a cheery "good morning."  My friend and I chat and catch each other up.  Then we treat ourselves to a nice, refreshing bubble tea (mine without the "pearls") and lunch afterwards.  So looking forward to hiking again (but mostly to the bubble tea!).

wow! amazing views from your hiking trail. We have a few walks around here we can do too. My favourites are through the bush (woods). I've never heard of bubble tea. Happy weekend!
