Or is it MIA?
I have no excuse for not posting for so long, I haven’t been busy or ill, just lazy. 😀
Truth be told life is being pretty dull of late. I started my new medications for MS symptoms and apart from a little added fatigue and dizziness they work pretty well, once I adjust all will be well.
Today was likely to be the last of the really nice weather days of the year so Hamish and I decided to travel the full length of our linear park. The official park is approximately 2 1/2 miles long but we are lucky enough to live a street away from an area that is pretty much left wild that we call the “scrub”, this is another 2 1/2 miles long and like the park runs between 2 areas of housing. On my buggy I can’t easily access the top mile of the scrub as there are high kerbs where a road cuts through but that’s okay. 🙂
The scrub is dotted with clumps of trees which Hamish has to visit in order to leave his calling card.
The scrub is largely even ground so my high ground clearance buggy copes well, the bodywork does crop some of the longer vegetation though. 😀 At the end of the scrub the cycle path begins next to a pond and marks the beginning of the park.
After the pond section of cycle path is an area near housing which is a favourite of Indy now that he is older and his joints don’t want him to go too far. It is also an ideal posing place for Hamish.
The main body of the park is served by the duel use cycle/ footpath which is well lit so can be used safely all day. The path runs through the middle and is flanked by football pitches (with changing rooms)and play areas but is mostly rolling grass with trees.
And a pause for a pose…
The undulating part of the park gives a good overview of the football pitches and one of the children’s play areas which we avoid on busy days as Hamish isn’t keen on little people!
After crossing the second of the 2 roads that dissect the park and the only one that needs to be crossed as the other has an underpass, there is a short final part of park before reaching Croyland gardens and then the end in the town centre.
There is always time for one final pose before returning home. 😀
Hamish was quite worn out by his excursion but I think he enjoyed himself.
Tomorrow strong winds and heavy rain are forecast, this is going to be the start of a longer period of unsettled weather so I will be hibernating for a while. Before we know it it will be books and box sets instead of buggy as winter starts. 😦
