I was busy all day today with all sorts of things – you know – the sort of things that must
be done but at the end of the day make you feel like you didn’t really achieve much and yet you’re happy with the day. That was the kind of day I had. I didn’t spend much time at the computer apart from checking email once in the morning. Then I was off to cook lunch and later, tackle my list of things to do.As usual, in the evening, we set off for our walk. I usually have the phone camera. But today, I decided to walk a little slowly and capture a few photos to show you what I see, every single day. My fitness regimen consists of housework (to the accompaniment of music) and my daily walk.There is this lovely fresh water lake about a kilometer and a half from our house which has a walking rink around it. Very nice, indeed. As you are about to see. I clicked a lot of photos and had a really tough time choosing what to post here. I think I overdid it a bit – and if you think it is a little too much, ummm..enjoy it!
Here we go; as always, click the photo to see the full size in a new window.
As soon as I walk into the gates of the Sankey Tank Lake, the first thing my eyes look for are these ducks. I could watch them for hours.
Like me, these dudes slack off sometimes and just chill and watch
Look at these hiding from the gaggle!
There are massive urns of flowering plants along the walking rink
See the flower in the middle? It was blue. No idea why it does not look blue in the pic
This is one of my favorite shots of the day – at the edge of the water, when we look down from the railing around the lake. I just love the color contrast
I was delighted when this group suddenly swam into view – they were all swimming helter-skelter and making a beeline for the little bird-house like structure in the middle of the lake
See? that’s where they’re heading! What you see behind are people walking along the rink – it is an elliptical sort of shape around the lake
A view from the other part of the rink
This is right in the middle of the lake. No leaves on the branches of this tree – makes you think they planted it like that there – the birds love to go perch on it
See – we entered the lake at the far top right and walked right around to this part
Closer to the railing. There are beds of crotons in different colors – shades of yellow, green, beige, red,
They thought to have this pretty setting along the way
It got dark. The lights came on
We decided to head back home. Just outside the gate, was this – a balloon seller who also had inflatable toys. There were lots of vendors, since this place is crowded on Sundays – families come with their kids. I saw a little boy with an inflatable cow, frantically pulling at the udders. Hmm. I giggled all the way home.
Okay, now that I said that, let me share this too. As we walked along as usual, Sury and I were busy talking (he was cooling off after jogging) and Vidur was marching like there was an army after him ahead. As we passed one of the benches (there are lots of them around the lake for people to sit and enjoy the view) – we heard a sound that literally rent the air. We looked at each other, simultaneously realizing that one of the women on the bench had farted passed wind. Oh boy – it was all we could do to control our laughter until we were well past them. That was our funny moment of the day.
So now, lets head over to the gorgeous Unknown Mami’s blog – and to more lovely cities from there.Did you enjoy the walk?Vidya Sury
