Sunny delight.

This is one of this most unique human beings I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He lives life on his own terms, has the ability to find the joy in everything and delights in unpicking the societal template that most conform to.

Talking of which (and not having sprogs myself), I love to watch kids off the leash and gravitating toward their own pleasures.

Whoops-a-daisy (my reaction), but this young one didn't care, she just kept on playing digging, building and getting wet.

Of course not all of us are so carefree, this little one secured herself like a limpet to her mother and for good reason.

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Having left my brass ovaries at home, I left the surf to those who had brought theirs with them.

The unique one surveys the scenery....

...."three little birds pitch by my doorstep"

My goodness it was a beautiful day and as we've been rain soaked for about a week, the contrast helped crank up the appreciation meter.

Just in case you needed more proof.

Oh heaven's to Betsy Sharon what are you unleashing with your post on the attributes of GP - it could all lead to tears :-) He will have even greater trouble walking through the door after this.....

Good pictures and story though:-)
Enjoy your birthday vacation - look forward to seeing that/those posts.

Is maybe GP a classic example of a "spiritual being having a human experience,"like Teilhard de Chardin wrote.

Don't worry Ma, as he's a spiritual being having a human experience, he'll just float through the door.

That wouldn't surprise me - I believe he also walks on water!
