Friday Skywatch - in the air.


Last weekend many children were busy with their own entertainment while the adults ate and drank and listened to the band at the local music festival.  Young girls swung and somersaulted in the early evening air, fleet of foot,  their hair flying. They reminded me of my childhood, quite a bit of it spent upside-down, walking on my hands, doing cartwheels, swinging endlessly from the big tree at the top of the orchard. (My brother had a den in it's branches but it was out-of bounds for me, his nuisance little sister.) How I would have loved to have been tied into this contraption of giant rubber bands and been able to leap and swing high into the air!


The boys needed no equipment other than their water bottles which they frequently replenished. Then it was back into the deer park to continue a water battle. It was hot enough for them not to care whether or not they got soaked!
Linking up with Friday Skywatch
to see skies from all around the world.
