Today one little Rabbit celebrated Leo’s third birthday by completing a beautiful 14K Winwick Circular hike. He was accompanied by MamaMus and her lovely friend Kinga who gave MamaMus much needed support (PapaMus had to travel abroad and was not able to join them).
A delightful walk led our Rabbit through the beautiful British countryside. He enjoyed an easy stretch along a little-used and unspoiled section of the Grand Union Canal, the charming village of Winwick, a wildness of surrounding wheat fields and rural paths, and stunning panoramic views from Honey Hill.
Standing on the top of the hill, with the cold breeze running through his fur, he contemplated the undeniable beauty of the nature and felt refreshed, empowered and somehow healed. In that moment of awe he experienced a sensation of being closer to the clouds, closer to Leo. With wonder and gratitude filling his little heart, the Rabbit sent his message to Leo via helium balloon post. A gentle wind carried the balloons up to the sky. Rabbit watched them for a while until they completely disappeared from his view. He gathered that they must have gone straight to heaven.
Leo's Rabbit 'lives' in my handbag and he travels with us everywhere we go. He has pictures taken at various locations, tourist attractions and places we visit. As a part of this blog we will describe Leo's Rabbit Travels to share our personal experiences from these visits. Hopefully couple of people (apart from us :-) ) will find it interesting and may even feel encouraged to visit one of Rabbit's destinations.
