The World Below the Sky Above

Where do I start - well we have just returned from what I would describe as another world; Florida! Big, hot & busy!

The World Below the Sky Above

Without lingering too much on why have felt the need to hop across the ocean, when there is still so much to see here at home. It was our holiday of a lifetime for my eldest son who is battling terminal osteosarcoma and is an above knee amputee. To cut the story short, it was nothing but amazing BUT boy did I enjoy seeing our moorland views upon arriving home.

We live in an amazing part of the world, we look out to the moors, yet are a stones throw from the seaside living in 'Heartbeat' country & a place that attracts many a film director, having fame for starring in Harry Potter & many films over the years, but retains in countryfied dignity. I know that we can find a new walk & adventure almost every day of the year - even if the route is the same the new season ultimately makes it new. Our last adventure involved my youngest two children, our first adventure back home once having slept off the jet lag.

A local walk only approximately 3km long, right outside our back door. Josh my eldest is sometimes unable to join us on every occasion due to the nature of our adventures & this so happened to be one of those routes where we climbed way up what seemed like hundreds of steps.

How would I describe this jaunt ... 'the world below, the sky above' the weather was just perfect to cloud watch. & I think that reflected on the boys, they were happy to be home & happy to get along with each other. A perfect breath of fresh air all around. Finn, my youngest loves watching the steam trains & Ashton just running anywhere. We are so lucky to live where we do, to have the freedom to walk, talk & run & prove our love for the great outdoors & our home.

    Hello Anna!
    There's me moaning about how hard it is to keep my trio equally happy on jaunts outdoors, and you've got 4 to juggle as well as your Josh's extra challenges! I'm very sorry to read of his illness. It sounds like this was just the cobweb-blower-away that you needed after jet-lag. I'm looking forward to reading lots more of your posts.

    Aw, Anna. I am so sorry to hear about your Josh's illness. I'm sure you made awesome memories in Florida and I hope your family's love of the outdoors will give you much peace during all your difficult times. I know a few cancer warriors and they are truly inspirational individuals as are their families. I'm very much looking forward to reading your posts - your part of the world really does sound amazing.
