Birds of a Feather

Think outside, no box is required!” ~ unknown 

I’m simple, I love hiking and going to the gym, just simple stuff. I love being outdoors and bike riding” ~ Lea Michele.   Me? I don’t like the gym and I fell off my bike too often!

Thursday morning – The night before I’d enjoyed a couple (I wasn’t counting) glasses of red wine and had conversed into the early hours with my friend from over the pond, but when daybreak arrived far too early I thought it was Friday and completely forgot about my usual Thursday day out with fourth daughter Sophie.

When Elizabeth, my third daughter rang and suggested the three of us take a walk in the fresh air to blow the cobwebs away, I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed.

Golden Acre Park is less than a ten minute drive from home and a wonderful place to spend an hour or so. Unfortunately, I wore inappropriate shoes for the water logged park (we’ve had a lot of rain lately) , so why didn’t the girls remind me to wear boots?IMG_1819

Parking up at Golden Acre we were met with the trill  of a multitude of water birds,  The fresh air was akin to a tonic, but I would have welcomed a second cup of coffee.

A number of the residents, the birds of a feather were happy to pose for our pictures.

The one above and the two below are screen shots from my video footage and in some ways  remind me of oil paintings
