204/365 Bang Bang

It's become a bit too muddy to walk to town along Quakers Walk, so instead now we go along the London Road, and past the Police H.Q. You can imagine my surprise as I walked by the other day to hear the sound of shooting, and the sudden appearance around the corner of a building of 3 armed men dressed in black with what looked to me like machine guns! I didn't have time to get my camera out, as they sped across the car park, ducking and diving between parked cars - thankfully away from rather than towards me! A man walked past me in the opposite direction - "Scary!" I said. "They playing cowboys and indians again?" he replied. Walking on a bit further past the entrance I saw this sign. (Click on the picture to enlarge and read) Thank goodness for that.

eek! We heard (and saw) some people on a pheasant shoot when walking recently. I was tempted to walk the rest of the way in "commando crawl" but husband convinced me shotguns don't shoot that far. Your experience was much more scary!
