Lovely weather for ducks

It's a well-known cliché, 'Lovely weather for ducks'!

My friend and I had decided we would definitely have a walk today, as it is so long since we walked together. The weather was not kind to us, and the rain forecast for later in the day put in an earlier appearence than we'd hoped. Of course it dried up later, after our walk. But we had a lovely time nevertheless, tramping through the mud with our brollies up! Sometimes you just have to brave the weather, but it's usually worth the effort.

We were as happy as these ducks, who also had some ice to contend with - hence the illusion of 'walking on water' (the ducks, not us, although we did end up with quite wet feet!). We rewarded our efforts afterwards with a leisurely lunch and a nice long natter at the Cafe in the Park. So thank you, KK, for your company, and may you fulfill your resolution as discussed....

Well that's one New Year's resolution kept - every day a walk or a visit to the gym! To shake off those winter blues! How are you coping with winter?

  1. I think it is good to get out for a walk everyday even if it is a short one! It has been nice weather for ducks here today too with the continuous rain. I hope you keep up your resolution of a daily walk outside!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.
