People Watching

A mother and child wander along the path in my direction, both with black caps and sunglasses and a small toy car in their hands.
They pause for a long moment at the building site and the boy points and jabbers, looking up every now and then to check mum is still paying attention. They move on to a piece of grass hunting lizards in the trees.
The Mum settles on the ground, and points at things in the grass.
The boy wanders a few steps, then goes back, leaning in for a cuddle. The Mum unconciously reaches up and then puts her head on his shoulder for the briefest moment before he pulls away and takes a few steps again.
