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.
