This morning I had an unexpected walk beside a stream. My Irish conversation group (Cupla Focla) was unable to meet because painting was being done upstairs in the library. So I ambled home instead and was very surprised to see ducks in the stream near the rear of the old shopping centre in Dundrum.
Ducks in the stream
away they swam
Then I went up to Airfield to check on the piglets. They have really grown a lot and are scurrying about in their pen. They get worn out and then they all huddle together and have a sleep.
