Our first walk.
Basil and I used to walk, every night and at the weekends, which sadly fell by the wayside when we moved here 3 years ago. With his last heart it has given us some impetus to get walking again the weather has improved so we went for our first walk this afternoon. We went through the school, and around the block which was interesting. the school though functioning has some outward signs of earthquake damage. Brodie a two storey classroom block has black plastic over the the red bricks, and unusable, but the newly installed hockey ground is now the only Olympic grade hockey ground untouched by the quake. Spring has sprung and there are some lovely Magnolias on our walk, what a lovely tree I wish they could bloom all year around.
