# 31 Local walks

One of the things we enjoy doing as a family is walking and we're very lucky that we live in a beautiful area with some lovely places where we can do just that and there's plenty of choice too, by the river, along canals, in the woodlands, around lakes, etc.

Last Saturday we walked from our house to the Deer Park again, it's such a beautiful place and on a clear day the views are amazing. Then on Sunday we chose Woodchester Park because A. likes to watch the ducks in the lakes which were still frozen so he had a great time making sticks and stones skid and bounce on the ice and hearing the strange sound they made. Plus the sun came out and there was a blue sky up above which made it just perfect.
