Doug had an enjoyable birthday yesterday. We stayed home and he spent a lot of time on the phone with calls from his daughters, grandchildren, sister in Perth and a nephew. The new oven worked well and we enjoyed a roast chicken with his youngest daughter as well as some of the cake I made him. In the afternoon some friends we have not seen for a while called in and the cake was almost finished by the end of the day.
We have been talking about getting back to doing the longer circular walk from home and, this morning, Doug suggested that we do it as it was a nice fine day. The red is our daily 1.75 km walk and the purple the walk we did today which took us 1 hr 30 minutes.
There were signs of spring all along the walk.
