Getting out and about

While not strictly the first outing since Bryn arrived; today’s was the furthest we’ve been en familia.

Our 'fleet'.  I'm towing our major Bryn-related extravagence - the Chariot CX-1.  Sarah's riding the Greenspeed Tricycle

The tricycle has allowed Sarah to do more than walk to places locally since Bryn was born – the relaxed seating position and 63 gears mean she can take it as easy as she needs to.

Today was the first of some planned family-time (away from work for a couple of weeks).  We felt inspired to head down the coast-hugging cycle paths past Woodman Point.  About a 25km loop – so more than the local shops or South Beach – it’s the welcome extending of our out-of-house ‘confidence’.

Lots of the cycleways look over the sea, but some takes you a bit further away.  The trike rides like a pedal-powered go-kart, with cornering as fast as you dare being a big part of the fun

Bryn’s carefully strapped in, with extra padding in case.  Not to mention a careful driver.  Timing it well, he sleeps through all of it.

The route is particularly well equipped with places to rest up - here after a feed

Not much in the bigger scheme of things, but a significant step back to ‘normal’ life again for us.  Welcome and very much enjoyed :-)
