Aussie Footsteps

When I lived in the Netherlands I used to “hop on the bikes” with the kids and “peddle” to the countryside so we could enjoy the birds, cows and horses. The dikes and the wide open spaces with the wind going through your hair was a favourite of us. We used to spend many hours at the beach to collect all sorts of little creatures and shells. At home, I had to check my daughter’s pants before throwing them in the wash because she used to collect worms etc and shove them into her pockets. Many worms I saved this way to the great dislike of my daughter because “she wanted to keep them”.
