My feet are the primitives here

It is good to go out walking with the chilren. Today we went to the Luukki forests, and walked around lake Kaitalampi, which is long but narrow. It took us almost two hours, as there was so much to explore.

The children discover all kinds of things. Such as that there was a small cave under the roots of a tree at the shore, and when you made waves in the water, there was a funny sound coming from below ground when the waves hit the cave.

There is a little snow still left in some places, but it is mostly gone now. And even more gone, as they predict +13 °C temperature for tomorrow, up five degrees from today.

(Posting title is from the poem Reverie in Open Air by Rita Dove.)
