Day 292 of 365: Briars-gon Trail
I think my husband might think I am going mad. We're unloading the last bit of things from the old flat (since Matt turns in the keys tomorrow) and I HAD to stop for this little fella. I named him Herman. I just couldn't resist taking a photo before I promptly picked him up from the walking path and placed him with his other snail-friends under the neighbours' bush. The last thing we want is a trod-on snail to track through the house.
It has been raining quite a bit today off and on and the damp weather really seems to bring out these slimy little creatures. I'm forever seeing little snail-trails across the pavement when we come home on a night, but I rarely catch them out unless we have a good downpour.
At least I know this little guy is safe and sound and out of harm's way...for now.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
