Went for another wheelie walk on Friday. That’s fresh air two weeks in a row! Me in the wheelchair and Growler pushing.
We went to Beacon Park in Lichfield. The paths are quite good for wheelchairs, although there’s some inclines to negotiate. Disabled parking is a bit limited – but as I don’t have a blue badge it’s not a problem I suppose. Oh – and it seemed the toilets were shut so it’s a good job home wasn’t far away!
There’s not as much to see as other places but it’s close by and in the week on a grey October day it was really quiet. (There are formal gardens with a fountain and statues, tennis courts, pitch and putt, childrens play area, duck pond which has boats in the summer for children, large playing fields, an ice cream booth).
I like that there are plenty of benches so Growler can sit with me a while and watch the world go by.
It was lovely to see the trees starting to turn autumnal and we even saw some silly dogs. I love watching silly dogs!
Beacon Park also has a healthy duck population. Ducks make me laugh. I love how ducks are ducks not matter what. They waddle about in their own duck way and quack and preen. No matter what a duck is always a duck and they go on with their duck business.
I aspire to be duck like 🙂
