Just before the year ended, we went for a walk in Heaton Park. I have actually never been to Heaton Park even though I have lived in Manchester for more than 10 years.

I was pleasantly surprised with the horses and ponies, made a mental note  to bring some carrots the next time.

My brother pretending he had peanuts to lure the squirrels over 😉

Chance upon this wood carving among the trees! Oh and if you have eagle eyes, you would have spotted the furry animal in the picture.

I tried to zoom in and take a picture of it. Didn’t realise it was looking right back at me until I uploaded the pictures to my Macbook.

It was a great way being in the park to end the year – just enough to recharge us.
