Cranky and Crane Park

Yesterday I felt cranky but luckily was able to, with social distancing, go and water some of my neighbours plants and also rake her grass.  The furious raking up of leaves was an opportunity to get over my annoyance at lockdown, my worry about friends and a bit of exercise too.

Today I went and found Crane Park.  I did not even know it existed!  My friend Tracey mentioned it and it is only thirty minutes from my flat.

flowersI loved this bench, I drove 2 hours in Tasmania, Australia to look at handmade benches.  I will have to post about that adventure one day.
