Each week there are prompts which require answering.

Week 37 - Feeding the Ducks or Animals

I remember really fondly visiting the local park to feed the ducks in the duck pond (which is now looking a bit worse for wear and I've not seen any ducks on for years!). We would take the leftover crusts or stale slices of bread.

A visit to the park in itself was an exciting event. The primary school I went to was in the grounds of our local park so after being picked up from school a visit to the playground or the ducks was occasionally on the agenda, especially if it was a day in which my grandparents picked us up from school. Grandad would ride our bikes across to the park for us.

I also fondly remember a family holiday in Scotland in which there was a horse in the field at the bottom of the garden of the rented cottage we were staying in. We fed it sugar cubes daily.

I also remember as a student walking along the canal from Hebden Bridge to Todmorden with some friends and being chased by the swans which was a bit more scary.


  1. You've prompted my memories of ducks! Thank you

  2. Those swans are so big! No wonder you were scared!
