TAKING A BREAK

A RETURN VISIT TO THE SARA MOREIRA PARK.
My daughter Eva and I did make a return visit to the Sara Moreira Park , but instead of driving all the way there, we decided to park the car in town, and walk along the board walk to reach the park another way. It was about 5.00 pm when we started our walk and we arrived 40 mins later. It's a walk that usually takes 30 mins, but I stopped many times to take photos. It's a very pleasant walk and here are a few images I took along the way, and some rather dark images taken in the shade inside the park. I am going to press the little pencil to add more to this post that I should have mentioned earlier.
I must tell you that we visited the park before the heat wave, some time in April, when it was much cooler, and before my accident. The result of the xrays I took two weeks ago, show that my ribs have not healed, and there is a misalignment in one of them. I knew that something just wasn't right, but have to wait to see the doctor again.
All the photos I took are of the narrowest part of the river.
A colourful duck in one image, with eyes open, and the other with eyes shut.
The Jay was in deep shade. As you can see, food on the ground was plentiful.
The only butterfly I saw, a very pale Speckled Wood.
Some wild flowers caught my attention.

WILDLIFE IN MY GARDEN
Here are some creatures I see daily, and others I see only now and again, All these images were taken in the garden, where I see fleeting glimpses of Jays, and images of many more Blue-tits than usual this year, and of course the Red Squirrel. One day this week there were five on my balcony. There were enough peanuts in their shells for all of them, and once they had eaten and left, I fed the birds. Sometimes one or another will return but they seem to know that the peanuts they had eaten were for them, and the shelled peanuts are for the birds. Perhaps it's because I have said "Ah," so many times when they have attempted to eat them, that now they just look, and then drink water before leaving again. It's been unbearably hot this week, on some days between 39-40 degrees, and in some areas even hotter.
Same as above.
All the goings on took only a few moments, and then I saw another Jay in the shade.
