Sometimes at our house we declare an "Adventure Day".
By name and definition it leaves the day open for anything.
I've already shared with you before one of my favourite sayings,
"If it's to be, it's up to me"
For me "Adventure Day" holds the same positive energy. A day for exploring and discovering without complicated planning or lots of money. A day only limited by your imagination.
Not just for little kids but for grown up ones as well.
Emma and I headed for Liffey Falls and along the way we talked about
life, love and expectations.
We found rushing pure water, flowing helter skelter. Noisy white and foamy, carving tracks through solid rock.
We found still, calm pools crystal clear and serene reflecting blue skies.
The incredibly vivid purple fruit of the Blue Flax Lily standing out proudly against the subtle greens of the surrounding bush.
Worlds within worlds.
This mossy fern covered log reminded me of Waldorf playscapes.
Adventure Day is about exploring all the possibilities and wondering what lies around the next bend.
It's easy to have adventure days when your children are young but it's just as rewarding and special when they are grown too.
