I didn’t want to get too far from home just in case i had to call it a day early after my recent hospital trip but things seem to be settling down apart from a little bit of pulling now and then.
There are lots of local footpaths in my area and also we have the Rochdale Canal and Tandle Hill Park on our doorsteps so it’s easy to get a walk straight from the front door.
Setting off along the canal towpath towards Chadderton is always pleasant and Dorothy took some bread to feed the geese, Mallard and others that join in the frenzy.
The Rain has eased off for a few minutes.
A group of some rather colourful snails
Mr and Mrs Mallard
A very large bunny
Passed by equines
Some dozy cows
Spring lambs with mum
Rain started getting heavier as we passed some bovines changing fields for sweeter grass.
Into the park the leaves are slow to bud on the Beech Trees
But the Hawthorn is out
We overtook these ramblers who must have thought that we were part of the group and they decided to follow us over a stile and through the next field and through a farm before somebody realised that they were going the wrong way. They headed off back. Where was Reg today!
You get talking and not looking and suddenly you think now where am i? Easy done.
Like i said at the start it was just a short bimble but enjoyable all the same and i didn’t have to dash home.
