Jez did not want to come for a walk this morning, so I took Max to Upton Country Park. This morning we walked all the way around the park: I thought it would do us both good to have a bit more of a walk.
Here is Max enjoying the stream.
He is going to be a very happy boy soon as the Sweet Chestnuts are coming along well.
As we passed the lake I spotted a heron doing a spot of fishing. The lens on this camera would not allow me to get a close up though.
We walked on round and Max had another play in another bit of stream, and then we took the shoreline path. This was looking across the reed beds to Poole.
Where the shoreline path through the Country Park meets the cycle path to Poole there is a stone seat under a tree. Today it was providing much needed shade.
If you want to sit and rest there a while it provides a lovely view across Upton Lake to Poole.
We continued on round and cut up across the front lawn before walking back through the Woodland Walk to the stream for one last dip before we went back to the car.
A year ago today
We went down to Lake Pier at Hamworthy. It was a windy morning and a kite boarder was taking full advantage.
