A Place to Ponder

I just discovered this darling little spot close to my home.


It's tucked away from the busy streets of my town.


There lies a quiet pond...


where birds rest and fishermen contemplate.



The equestrian stables are adjacent to the park. 


The occasional sound and smell of horses remind me of a pleasant visit to the country.


What a fine discovery I have made :-)

The perfect place to relax and have a quiet walk. Finally the rain has stopped here - maybe we will manage to have a stroll tomorrow if it stays fine!
