What with one thing and another (including wardrobes), we don’t get out for our walks as often as we should. It was a lovely afternoon so we thought we’d bite the bullet and risk the crowds.
The park was packed, and cars had made their own parking spaces on the grass.
Our friend was sailing his model boats with some colleagues so we stopped to chat, managing to keep out of the way of unmasked visitors. It was easy to forget the restrictions and lockdowns of late as it seemed like a perfectly normal day as it was 2 years ago.
We moved on the take some pictures of a creche of goslings. I counted 18 youngsters being guarded by four adults. This is a relatively new brood(s) judging by the size of them.
Once again we noticed few ducks , then saw a few little ones coming off the island. We counted 5 but they were all over the place, so I’ve cropped this picture as it was the best of the few we took. Still no sign of Geraldine.
We were thinking of going for ice cream, but could hardly see the cafe for people, so turned round and made for home.
It was nice to get out for a walk, something we will hopefully be doing more of in coming weeks.
I hope that you get more time to walk too. That way, we’ll get to see more such amazing pictures. Take care.
Thanks Shweta. I’m still getting to grips with the new camera, but the clarity is lovely.
It’s lovely indeed
They are so sweet! Terrific photos! So unfair that you can’t enjoy the beauty all around you because of visitors who behave as if they own the world.
It was OK today as we could keep out of their way, plus Hubby was beginning to stiffen up so we couldn’t have walked too much further anyway. It’s been a good day!
That is great!!
Beautiful photos and hopefully we can move forward slowly 💜
Everything takes time, so we just take each day as it comes.
As do we 💜
Those little downy babies are so cute! Glad you got to get some fresh air for a little while. 🙂
Thanks Barbara. It was really good to go for a walk today.
I’ve heard that life is almost back to normal in UK! Even the PM has deemed it safe enough to get married! Cute pictures.
We’re still wary though. Town is busy and few are wearing masks other than locals.
Yes, better be safe.
Love the photos of the ducks. Thanks, Di
Glad you like them. They are so sweet.
Its lovely to get out into the fresh air! I love going on walks with Nitro! X
We are hopefully going to get back into the habit of going out for walks again.
