Sunday’s are for adventures! Today’s challenge is from Sharon Higgins.

“I am 65 and come from Salford. I like to take wildlife photographs, paint and walk. Being close to nature makes me happy and I find peace in a troubled world.”

Where are you right now? Think about the area around you, and choose somewhere that you’d like to explore a bit more today.

You could find out more about the history of the area, the names of the buildings or streets, you could find out the answer to questions you’ve always had about the place…

You could explore your area in your imagination, by sharing stories about the place, by being outside, or by drawing out a map detailing your favourite places.

What is your favourite thing about the area? What is something new you’ve discovered recently?
