The first is my journal page about one of our walks that we often take while staying at our caravan and it is the last chance I have to join in at Art Journal Journeys with Erika's fabulous theme - 'Journeys'
We love to watch the wading birds that are often on the beach away from the town.
Of course in the town there is the statue of Eric Morecambe which a few months ago was knocked off it's plinth - it has been replace now but I'd like to think that while Eric was freed he got a chance to go along and see the birds.
The second walk is one we took yesterday - it was a lovely warm afternoon and we went by the River Mersey, just a short walk away from our flat.
Hubby often goes out walking on his own if I am…as he says…'stuck in my craft room'! He has been exploring and yesterday we went under the motorway bridge in the opposite direction to the village we go and visit. He told me that this path eventually leads to the water park that we drive to so maybe one day we will take a picnic and walk the whole way.
|The houses are almost built now|
|This is the island that gets covered in Winter-there is a family of geese at the far end on the left - we will see them again soon!|
Edit- when I saw them I counted 3 - Tony took my phone off me as he is taller but I didn't notice that he captured more then I could see!
When we reached the island again - having crossed a bridge to the other side we saw that the family we saw earlier had come to be fed by a little girl.
|There are around twelve adult geese and nine goslings|
This was our treat after we had been to the cinema the other week - Coffee and a fruit scone for me, hubby had tea and a very sticky looking slice of cake. We had also shared a pack of sandwiches.
Thanks for looking, Chris
