I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

early morning (well, not too early!) stroll in the park


Because of the lovely hot weather we’ve been having, I decided on an early morning trip to the park.  I’m still trying to keep up with my resolve to go for walks, and I don’t think I’m doing too badly really.  There were a few people around taking advantage of the cool morning temperatures to walk their dogs or, like me, taking some exercise and there was a steady flow of groups of mums with small children and babies in pushchairs who, having dropped their older children at school,  were obviously there settling in for a day by the river, or near the play area. They had blankets, sun shades, picnics, cool boxes and large bags no doubt filled with towels, and swimming costumes etc.

I took a quick snap of the view from the bridge of the trees and the willow spiling ( a method of preventing erosion using live willow stakes woven with live willow rods) along the edge of the river.  What a difference compared to the photo from May.

The river was very calm here with overhanging branches and lots of water plants.  It’s hard to know where the reflection begins and ends.

I took a walk along the canal towpath which was very busy with boats that had been there for a festival at the weekend.

It was a lovely walk, but now it’s time to catch up with all the other things that need to be done.  Apparently today is going to be the hottest day of the year so far.

  4. I saw on the news that your hot weather is continuing. Mid winter here and today it was 8 to 18 degrees. Just right I think!

Now it's your turn
