I’ve more or less decided that I am pretty rubbish at this blogging lark…I start with great gusto and then run out of ideas as I feel my normal life is more or less just that…boring! I will try harder.
A couple of years ago we decided to downsize and move to the county of Shropshire. We knew it was a lovely place to visit but didn’t realise how beautiful it actually is and how we would fall in love with it.
The month of May saw a flock of ducks appear along the River Severn in the Ironbridge World Heritage Site. Nothing out of the ordinary there you may remark, ducks on the river, pretty normal.
Oh no…not normal at all!!
How fantastic are these ducks! #LetsGoQuackers Free Accessible Community ArtTrail.
They are dotted along the Ironbridge Gorge and it’s an enjoyable walk with or without children in tow. The ducks have been designed by local artists and school children to encourage us all to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There is an ultimate reason for these ducks and that is to raise money for Severn Hospice which is local to this area. The hospice is close to my heart as nearly ten years ago my mother spent a few days here and had wonderful care from the staff.
The ducks will travel to Shrewsbury soon and then be auctioned for the charity. I am certain they will bring someone much pleasure and raise pots of money for a well deserving charity.
We really enjoyed our day out walking along the River Severn and finding all the ducks. We met other families having fun in the sunshine and children laughing as they spotted the next duck. Fresh air and laughter is a heady mix…we need more of it!
Enjoy the sunshine and always take time to relax with a coffee and cake.
