Sunday, April 21, 2013

I've been in Regent's Park this afternoon. My sore foot was not actually sore this morning so I treated it to another short walk.

London's parks are always full of people on sunny weekends, especially when the weather's been lousy. It's so nice to see everyone out and doing their own thing.





This lady was feeding about 12 herons. Herons are a very timid wild bird but nobody had told these ones. I assume she feeds them regularly so they are used to her.



I'm keen on ducks myself. I've starting blogging on the blog I set a year ago and never got around to.

    London's parks are lovely. And what is amazing to me is that they have those nice folding chairs in the parks, and they do not get stolen. Here, if there is a folding lawn chair around and no one watching it, someone would carry it off. Sad to say, but true.

    I'm glad your foot isn't too sore after your long walk yesterday. I found that if I got some exercise it actually helped my plantar fasciitis. Just keep doing calf stretching exercises. It really makes a difference.

I see the trees are blooming and you have spring flowers in your park. Our daffodils bloomed two months ago. Nice day for a walk in the park. Those are really tame herons! We're generally not allowed to feed ducks and geese. They are so messy. I've never seen that many herons together like that. I have watched a heron eat all the koi fish in a friend's pond, once!

    Wonderful day at the park. I enjoyed your photos. Took me back to my one trip to Europe when I saw the backpacks strewn on the ground while everyone went off playing. It's a nice kind of freedom.

    Glad to hear that your foot has allowed you to enjoy a Spring time walk. We are finally hitting our Spring stride here in Maine, USA too. The pictures are a treat and the link to your new/old blog worked today. My computer might be temperamental LOL

    Glad your foot is better. My DH saw two blue herons by the river across the road from us. That was yesterday. We're going to try to get out this afternoon for a quick walk down to the bridge to see if they're out and about. It's supposed to warm up a little and the wind to die down, but we're getting rain and snow tonight and tomorrow. It looks lovely in Regent's Park. We spent an afternoon there several years ago.
