A Walk In The Park

Daniel and Eleanor had an inset day on Friday, so Mick took a days annual leave and we spent a few hours at Golden Acre Park.

It's the first time that we have let Archie off the lead on a walk and he was really good, coming to us when called. We made sure that we were well in to the park before we took off his lead as we were unsure how he would react, but our worries were unfounded.

Daniel and Eleanor had a good time climbing trees, something I took for granted when I was a child as there was a wood at the bottom of our street, and we had so much more freedom then than kids do nowadays. Archie enjoyed playing in the leaves.

There are so many mushrooms and toadstools around just now that I couldn't resist taking photos of some of them.

The trees are now showing their autumn colours, and many are slowly losing their leaves.
We forgot to take anything with us to feed the ducks with, but Eleanor found some bread on the floor which she threw to a hungry crowd.

Golden Acre is one of our favourite parks as there are so many different walks around it, a nature reserve, some lovely planting and there's also a wonderful tea room. Well worth a visit if your in the area.


  1. It sure looks, and sounds, like you all enjoyed yourselves, especially Archie! Flighty xx

  2. It was a lovely walk, Flighty. We're so lucky that there's so many wonderful places around here with lots of interest.
