During the Easter break, a little visitor came to stay and one of the things we planned into our days together were a couple of English lessons!
However, it wasn't all work and no play, not at all!
Our first outing was to go downtown to visit the cathedral and admire the architecture and take some photos.
Wow! Look how tall these columns are!
The day was cold and windy, so we dashed to a little café we know in the old part of town to drink a thick, hot chocolate!
It was so thick, we had to eat it with a spoon!
The chocolate was accompanied by a mini Panettone, which is a rich Italian bread made with eggs and fruit and butter according to a secret recipe and traditionally eaten at Christmas.
Then we took the bus back home and had fun time in the local park.
Jumping for joy!
The next day was warmer and we even got some sun
and we drove out into the country to have a picnic by the pond.
There were masses of wriggling tadpoles for us to observe.
We couldn't have gone at a better time!
Playing by the stream was one of the highlights of the outing.
The woods were so peaceful except for beautiful birdsong and the sound of the running stream.
These photos are not about artistic composition
they are about the composition of Life
and how we can capture the wonders around us and rediscover
the sheer joy of existence
through the eyes of a child!
