Pepe and I had a good day out today at Daisy Nook Country Park!, first stop was the Cafe for a breakfast muffin, Sausage and Bacon, very nice too, also discovered that they Allow dogs into the seating area, so instead of the usual trying to get your food and drink down outside before it goes cold, it was a leisurely affair, the only down side I found was that the WI FI connection was'nt working as the wardens who had the connection had all be retired!.
Still it was nice and warm with plenty of people using it, they are open every day except Christmas day which was good news!.
Nice clean toilets and seating area.
Not a bad menu as well.
Then it was off round the park which I'd not been too for a few years, not much changed except for my interests.
The children's play boat was standing up well to the elements, been there for a few years now.
The Cafe area and car park.
Plenty of horses around if you like them. Pepe seems to like them but couldn't eat a full one!
Ponytails!, They say that dog owners look like their owners, does that go for horse owners?.
Not been down here before but seen children playing in the river from off that bridge.
Further round near the canals found some wildlife.
These Gray lag geese with the usual White goose tagging along!
A Heron hiding amongst the reeds.
Then I couldn't believe it when a guy pointed out this Teal!!.
Id always thought they were a bit smaller that this but perhaps its a bit overweight getting some fat on for the coming cold spell.
Couldn't get a clearer picture as it was too far away and wouldn't be enticed nearer with some seed, perhaps next time
It started to rain as well which didn't help the situation, can't blame Pepe for pulling my arm as my new Carabiner attachment on my belt to clip his lead to works well and I'm pleased with that!
So with the rain it was back to the Cafe and another hot drink to warm me up.
Off to the Daisy Nook Garden Centre then!,
Oh No its that time again!
Walking round the Centre.
Dog friendly area in the cafe, nice to see that places are opening up to us dog owners, closing a lot of customers out other wise, all ways been good here though!
Prices gone up a bit since I was last here, but its the same everywhere isn't it, still not bad though.
Well that's my investigations done for the day, Two dog friendly places found !.
Had a look round the centre to see if I could find anything to make my bird bath into the idea that my Mate Bob the Builder had suggested last week, with this Photo shopped picture where he's used the top and fitted another section lower!.
Then found this nice green bowl which is just the Bees Knees I think, just the right size as well.
Bought a few other bits and pieces, ie Bird seed and feeder.
Then saw this beautiful plant that I've been looking out for for years, only small now ( but so was the price) but with a bit of TLC will be alright.
So all in all a good day, which the slight shower didn't spoil!
If you live in a glass house, you should change clothes in the basement!.
If you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
Drive carefully, its not only cars that can be recalled by their maker!.
