Walking and strolling
We have been very good with our walking and strolling, my GKB and I.
Sometimes we stroll along the Silverstream and have views like this to look at.
This was along the 'left bank'.
When you get to the end of our street and go onto the floodbank
you can turn either left or right.
One side is flanked by the Silverstream and farmland and in the case of the 'left bank',
it is farmland on both sides.
If you turn right it is private dwellings on one side,
most of them have lovely gardens to admire,
and the Silverstream and farms on the other.
It is a shared space,
cyclists, joggers, walkers and dogs with their humans.
It's never boring.
We met a dog with her man a couple of days ago,
she takes him out at 1:30pm every day
regardless of the weather, so he said.
I meant to get a picture of them but got so busy talking I forgot.
Sometimes, like today, we head for a park.
I wanted to go to the library before we head up to the caravan
so we took a walk around the gardens at the adjacent park.
They are dressed in their mid summer frocks at the moment
and are rather pretty.
We had a bit of a sit before we headed home again
and this little fellow came looking for crumbs.
He had a few mates with him but I'm afraid we disappointed them all
because we hadn't really thought about feeding the birds.
Maybe next time we'll be better prepared!
We are off to the caravan in a couple of days,
so until we get back look after yourselves.
Have a good week everyone,
