For some time now I've had a little goal that I'd like to start running. I've been feeling so full of life on my low fat raw vegan diet that I actually VOLUNTARILY got up on this sleepy Sunday morning and went for a RUN! Yes, you did read that correctly.... a RUN! It was only very short - halfway round the Koala reserve and back - but, I'm near on exstatic that I could even do that much! I've never really been a runner before - even though I was always fit (pre difficult pregnancy) - but for some reason I have been envisioning myself running through the country side and shifting all that blocked energy as I fly by. I've been craving this expression of power and strength since I was told (not all that long ago) that I was told I wouldn't be able to do anything of the sort ever again (I was wheel chair bound throught the 2nd half of pregancy due to unstable pelvis). My muscles were weak and I barely made it home, but I was soooooo excited that I'm nearly tearing up as I write this!
After such a brilliant start to the day - Oh and did I mention the sun was shining like it was spring- we gathered ourselves and took off to a local farm where we picked up some delicious goodies that any Raw eater would appreciate.
After this Aria konked out in the car while we drove down the peninsula to Cape Schank and took advantage of the fact that all the national parks around here now have free admission (as of July 1 this year).
Isn't it great to be ALIVE!
Gnome's carpet pops up where you least expect it!
Lots of "Tuddles" with Dadda today.
Aria insisted on walking down EVERY one of those stairs - all the way to the end and back up again! The other visitors were most intrigued!
Such little legs and so many steps!
A little break for Mama...
... which didn't last for long.
Some awesome views
Some sort of sea mushroom-trumpet thingee with a seaweed hair do!
Lots of snuggles in the wind while looking at the ocean lap over the pebbled coast.
