Rest a While

I didn’t find a Teddy Bear’s Picnic but despite that it ‘was’ rather noisy. There was music blaring out along the Silkin Way, a ride on mower in the hospital grounds, parents and children having having conversations at the top of their voices and the sound of bagpipes.

A Perfect Viewpoint

A Perfect View

Rest a While With Me

When I arrived at Apley Pool I was struck by how tranquil it was in comparison to my walk there. I noticed a new (replacement) bench. It is in a perfect location tempting me to ’sit and rest a while’. Some things just have to be done. I continued my walk around the pool before enjoying the view and sounds of the birds from another another bench, a favourite of mine. Then I made my way back home via a different route through the woods accompanied by the haunting sound of bagpipes…

      If you go down in the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise
      If you go down in the woods today, you’d better go in disguise
      For every bear that ever there was
      Will gather there for certain because
      Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic
      Every teddy bear who’s been good is sure of a treat today
      There’s lots of marvelous things to eat and wonderful games to play
      Beneath the trees where nobody sees
      They’ll hide and seek as long as they please
      That’s the way the teddy bears have their picnic
      Picnic time for teddy bears
      The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today
      Watch them, catch them unawares
      And see them picnic on their holiday
      See them gaily gad about
      They love to play and shout
      They never have any cares
      At six o’clock their mummies and daddies
      Will take them back home to bed
      ‘Cause they’re tired little teddy bears
      If you go down in the woods today, you’d better not go alone
      It’s lovely down in the woods today, but safer to stay at home
      For every bear that ever there was
      Will gather there for certain because
      Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic

    Oh dear, now that song is going to be stuck in my head!

  6. It’s good to see some green there.
    Our lawn is bone dry, totally parched and brown.
    It has not rained in my area for such a long time, I kinda miss the rain now.
