Last Saturday, we visited Thornes Park in Wakefield. The main idea was to visit the Walled Garden for a post for my other blog, The Good Life. You can read about it on my Thornes Park In February post. We had Archie with us so after a look around the gardens we decided on a walk around the park. Archie came off his lead and had a good run around but as we neared the lake, we put him back on his lead otherwise he'd have been straight in the water.
It was a cold day and part of the lake was iced over, there looked to be some quite sharp pieces of ice jutting out.
Lots of birds use the lake.
The Canada Geese can get quite aggressive as you pass them, Archie wasn't very keen.
There was a man with his little boy throwing bread for the birds.
The rest of the Canada Geese couldn't come quickly enough when they knew food was around.
There was plenty for everyone.
This isn't a park we usually visit so it was a change to go somewhere different and Archie enjoyed himself.
