FOWC with Fandango — Ramble

Gone are the days when we would have outside lessons and sometimes a nature ramble on a school outing. We’d be given a list of things to look out for, find and collect, then in class next day would discuss what we’d gathered.
No living creatures of course like slow worms, beetles, caterpillars, bugs or butterflies, but there was always an array of pebbles, stones, twigs, grasses and the occasional pretty flower.
I loved classes like that. Go out of first school when you were encouraged to learn about Nature and your surroundings and enter that of Big School where you’re given a book about nature and told to read. It’s not the same.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
