The past two days of walking the “neighbourhood” has been full of wonder and delight. Because I am walking so slowly (recovering from minor surgery), there is more to notice, discuss and share, especially with the younger Sprout. One such wonder is, of course, mechanical in nature: a helicopter. Speculation abounded about the purpose of this flying machine with attached wire and objects. We finally agreed that the helicopter was ferrying hydro poles and bits for the hydro lane north of our home. The younger Sprout was fascinated with what was happening and would often stop to watch while waiting for Papa to catch up.
