We intially had big plans to head out early today and drive a considerable distance to visit another village. However, thankfully we stopped ourselves just in time before falling into the normal holiday trap of trying to fit in way too much in a short time and missing what is on your doorstep. So instead we took a deep breath and decided to explore closer to home and not miss out on the simple treasures nearby. And we are so gad we ...
