Family walk


Now Arthur is walking we were excited to take him to the Vallee de Mai for our first proper family walk together!

It’s an amazing place to go and we are so so lucky that we get to go there for free with our residents card.  The Vallee de Mai is a Unesco World Heritage Site and its a ten minute drive for us to get to!  Apparently when the first people arrived at Seychelles they thought they had discovered the real garden of eden and that the coco de mer tree (the tree that grows the worlds largest nut… looks like a bum, no really have a look )  was the tree of knowledge!

On Friday we went up to the Vallee and had our very first little walk!

We have been to the Vallee de Mai quite a few times before with Arthur but he has always been in the baby carrier. We took it with us this time expecting that after a short time Arthur wouldn’t want to walk any more but he was such a little champion. He walked with us for about 20 minutes holding our hands, stopping to look at lots of things along the way.


We thought his little legs were looking a little tired so we attempted to put him in his carrier……well, let’s just say that didn’t go down to well!! We found a bench and let him chill out for a little bit. We decided to head back to the car and Arthur was happy to be carried (just not in his carrier!)

Mark and I couldn’t keep the smiles of our faces it was the most special little moment.  Our first real family walk, Arthur absolutely loved it too!  A new ordinary moment, one I can’t wait to do again really soon!


Happy Sunday

  1. What an incredible first walk! I’m not sure that can be topped. All other walking experiences from now on will be rather ‘ordinary’ in comparison, haha! #OrdinaryMoments

  2. Oh wow – I can see why they thought they’d found Eden – it’s beautiful, and what a wonderful setting for a first walk – it’s lucky you get to go whenever you like because that could take some topping!
