One of the amusements at Black Park
One of our favorite places to walk here is Black Park. It's right next to the Pinewood Studios lot, and is often used as an outdoor set for films made at Pinewood. We've come upon sets while wandering around the park before, which adds a bit of drama to our walk.
And also cows. We don't always see cows in the park, but when we do, they're in an enclosed area, so they're safe from dogs like Sparky who hasn't yet figured out that cows are our friends.
A couple of weeks ago, while prowling around the park hoping to come across a set from Star Wars, we came upon instead a herd of brown cows. Sparky looked a little too interested, so we called him back from the fence and leashed him--normally he can run off lead throughout the park with no worries, which is why it's one of our favorite places to go.
I'm not sure who owns the cows that graze in Black Park. Maybe they're there as public amusement, sort of like the zip line that attracts kids on weekends.
Meanwhile, closer to home, my cows have been kept in the far pasture the last couple of months, so I haven't seen them. Which suits Sparky just fine; he has a hard enough time keeping the garden free from squirrels.
