One + Four = Life 18/52

  Joining in with the ever gorgeous Pip at Meet Me at Mikes for this week’s ‘One+Four=Life project – one week, four photos! 1.  Pablo the French Bulldog came for a walk to school and found himself a tennis ball! 2. It was Field Day this week and a lovely day was had. 3. and 4.

We spotted lots of wildlife, including horseshoe crabs, gray seals, a coyote which was very cool and just behind our cottage (eek), birds birds and more birds, fiddler crabs (whoever invented those things was clearly drunk) and chipmunks …
