We were passing through St. Blazey when my wife suggested we should have a wander around the local Duck Pond. So we did.
St. Blazey is named after St. Blaise a Bishop who was martyred in Armenia in the fourth century. He supposedly landed at nearby Par in the third century. Oh yes, and it is said that his name is invoked by those who suffer from throat problems. Anyway, back to the pond!
In the good old days, okay just a short while back, I'd take my grandchildren to the pond armed with duck food. That was always fun.
The pond is all very pleasant, though there didn't seem to be as many ducks, and the like, as I remembered.
Three photos from back then.
Moving on to the pond at Par, near Par Beach
A duck admiring his reflection in the pudle.
The seagulls seem to think they are in charge of Par Pond ...
... but the Canadian Geese would perhaps disagree.
Anyway, to finish today's post four photos snapped in our garden
Wishing you a happy week ahead and thanks for visiting my blog. All good wishes ~ Mike.
