A walk in the park: 30th May

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 am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I hope that you get more time to walk too. That way, we’ll get to see more such amazing pictures. Take care.

  2. 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.
