I had never been to the park "Le bois des rêves " (Wood of dreams) although it is not very far from where I live. It was a beautiful sunny day and together with my friend Nicole and dog Charlie we decided to discover it and have a nice walk.
It is the ideal place for walks and tranquillity, but also for sports lovers and fishing enthusiasts and on fine summer days many people enjoy a swimming pool which was still closed.
The Park also has a playground, barbecue pitches and a nice restaurant.
When we arrived we heard loud Greek music and then saw people dancing the Sirtaki obviously having a Greek party.
The restaurant was near the wood with view on the lake.
There was a little river which splashed over the rocks
The wood was so green in all different shades and was reflected in the water which seemed green too.
We saw an heron waiting for his prey and people feeding geese and swans.
We did a long walk through the wood and then made a tour around the lake and watched the fishermen sitting there and waiting for a fish to come. I still wonder why this is called a sport. They hardly moved !
The whole domain is 62 hectares big (153 acres) mostly wood and I am sure that there is some wildlife in there too.
We ended our walk having a drink on the terrace of the restaurant and watched the Heron, still walking around. What a nice afternoon.
