The last day of September

We had a lovely day today - a welcome break in some wretched weather this week, so I took the camera for a walk in our local park. Luton has an excellent Parks department and has several well kept parks and we our very lucky that the best is within easy walking distance from my home - so join me in Wardown Park.
It was still very wet underfoot,

Shooting into the sun.
Sat by the lake
Through the willows

Eyeing me up!

View from the bridge


That's me on the water


Time for reflection

Not the sort of Ratty you really want to see


The daisy-chain wall in front of the museum

It has taken me ALL evening to upload these photos. Some took five minutes others about 30 seconds and it made no difference what size file they were either. I even tried to create a Picasa web album (which I think I did) but I can't access it!! Oh well, back to the drawing board.

Lovely park, how near the airport are you!

I've just taken an age to load up my 'walk', too - some coming up huge & very red, must be an overload or something.

I live across town Emma so very rarely have any noise problems. I did live under the flight path for a few years - sometimes you could stand in the garden and scream and not be heard!

Jill,
What fab photos. I was really enjoying that walk until I got to the nasty one of the little rodent thing.... if I have a phobia about any animal it is them. Moving swiftly on... my favourite is of the canada goose gliding serenely along. How peaceful and tranquil it all looked. Lovely. Lesley x

Thanks for the walk through your beautiful park. It is, indeed, serene and colorful. Even the pigeons are handsome. And ratty looks like he has made quite a nice home there. Glad you took time to put this fine post together.
