You know you’re walking in tree-less terrain when your son starts using cow plops as landmarks! Poop is something we talk about a lot right now, mainly because we’d really like Milo to put his own in the potty rather than in his undies. Animal poop seems to be a particular interest of Milo’s, and on our walk today we encouraged him onward by pointing out several sizable specimens. Milo and I went walking with our friend Jennifer (Jeremiah is out hunting this weekend) on a path along Pigeon Bay, out on the Banks Peninsula towards Akaroa. It’s all steep pasture for cattle and sheep now, though at one time it was woods.
