I couldn't provide those - but it's not as if you can be miles away from footpaths in the small forests in my vicinity. The many ditches and small brooks are a dominant feature in the forest closest to where I live - and after the last couple of days, many areas are practically waterlogged. However, while things are unusually wet at the moment, the ditch itself isn't a real problem, nor should navigating that particular area be: It's flat and mostly open with few trees and little undergrow. What's important is that water alone can't have carried the umbrella there - these aren't "streams"; mostly, it's slow running water you can jump across even in the worst of times.That does seem odd. Would like to see the photos of the story behind that.
Kids are known to leave their coats behind, sometimes on purpose, We used to fuss with our boys about them ditching their coats when they felt they were inconvenient.
Understood - and I actually can relate to that: My good friend's son actually sheds varied pieces of garment indiscriminately - which resulted in one hell of a workout for his dad last time they went sledding (due to the pandemic, I only played witness ...). But still, I'm not aware they got home with any major losses ... Anyhow, maybe it'll be gone by tomorrow, we'll see. I'll report back if I was too harsh on that one.Kids are known to leave their coats behind, sometimes on purpose, We used to fuss with our boys about them ditching their coats when they felt they were inconvenient.
