I got the most interesting idea while out grocery shopping alone today.
I usually get some insane insight or flashbulb moment while doing some repetitive routine task, ALONE, such as grocery shopping, dishes, cleaning, or my ideal one, having a shower (because I demand alone time in there so no one can so much as make a peep outside the bathroom door!)
I thought of a cafe in town that I hadn’t been to for a while… and though nowhere near as close as our neighbourhood cafe (an 8 minute walk at most), I wondered “how far was it to walk there, for real?”
So I went home, and searched for the answer on this supremely sunny day. 😉
Google told me, 23 minutes.
That wasn’t long! I shared my insight with the fam bam, not thinking much of it…
But guess where we started walking to after lunch?
It was a very decent walk. Three times the length of our normal cafe walk, and in the sun…
But so close to the water too.
We stopped at a bench overlooking the beach to sip our coffee and have some sweet nibbles, while breathing in the air and enjoying the twinkling, winking waters below.
And then we started the walk home… I LOVED IT.
But baby girl was literally slumping onto the grass minutes from home, going “I am so tired!”
I guess the whole walking long distances thing is a bit lost on her…
But it’s ok! I found another cafe, and this one is at an in-between range of only 14 minutes…
