My sweet boyfriend indulged me by taking me to the local Monastery's private garden which is basically a forest. It's a few minutes from our house but I had never even been there, insane right? The path was covered with chestnuts and fallen leaves, picture pretty autumn! I don't think I've ever experienced bare leg + sandal type weather this far into autumn, and it is amazing. Better than summer even. First pic is a bit pixelated, but the forest was really dark and I just needed to get some light into the photo.
Apparently, chestnut spikes are frickin sharp! I don't know why but I imagined them to be softer, somehow. Yep, no sense at all.
After one of the path's bends we were suddenly and swiftly approached by this duck. At first I thought it wanted to attack us or something because it kept waddling towards us until it was within pecking reach, which prompted me to jump behind my heroic boyfriend, but the little guy just wanted to check us out. He even let me pet him and followed us around through the forest for the rest of our walk! :-D
Also, I stepped into some nettles. I look like I'm hurting but actually I told my boyfriend how wimpy kids really are. I clearly remember crying over some nettle stings when I was still a child, but when you step into some as an adult it just itches a bit. Feh, kids!
