Around the Walpole

As walking is one of my ways to unwind after a day of consulting I am always happy when I can find a beautiful place to walk.  The Bird Park in Walpole was no exception.  It was a peaceful place to walk with multiple paths to choose from.  Just as I began my stroll I spotted this little stream (brook?) alive with green.  I was struck by the moss on the rocks in the water.  Honestly, I thought that was something that you'd only see in a Tolkein movie adaptation.

Do you see the face?
Can you see the squirrel?  He's in a stand-off with the goose.

When I left for the walk rain was in the air.  It had been raining most of the day, but broke mid-day.  This gave me just enough time to get a couple miles in.  As you can see, I was really racing the next storm.  Is that not beautiful?
