Tuesday 6 October
On checking with the Gaiter Girls I discovered that there would be only 3 of us, so I asked for suggestions for a plan for the day.
Rachel, who has just had a huge back operation replied, "Ducks".
Our morning was thus spent at Underwood Park, at Rochedale. The park covers quite a vast area and has something for everyone. When my sons were young it was regularly visited for soccer matches and I have played netball there. There are two fabulous children's playgrounds, BMX track, skate park, arbors for weddings, BBQ's and picnic tables, scouts den, duck and lily ponds.
On arrival we walked 5km on its flat paths, so suitable for Rachel.
