Exercise anyone?

This morning while Melissa was at her pool exercise class, the littlest one and I did some exercising of our own. He practised his rapid eye movements and I power walked. It was a perfect winter's day. The sun was shining, it was warm and the river looked like a mirror.

As I powered strolled along I heard a splash in the water and thought a bird had dived in to catch a fish. But it wasn't a bird, it was a dolphin swimming alongside us. I pointed the camera towards the spot where I thought it might resurface, but of course I was always pointing in the wrong direction so you will just have to believe me on this one.

We walked through wetlands and watched the birdlife.

We walked through the park and coveted the enormous piles of leaves which would make such rich compost.

We walked the streets and admired the continuing autumn foliage.

No, we weren't in Tuscany.

All in all, the littlest one and I think we had a good workout this morning and we got to enjoy the scenery as well.

Paradise really.
