A Walk Along The Canal Side – bliss.

A walk along the canal side is always going to bring joy. Last Thursday, the weather turned bright and cheerful, so we set off to walk beside the water to enliven our spirit and enjoy the softness of feeling that being beside water always brings. Come with me as I walk and listen to the sounds of Spring.

  3. It feels so good to be outside in the sunshine again after this miserable winter. A lovely place to walk! I hope we get a good Spring, there is so much to do in the garden too.

  4. I love canal walks, river walks and walking near the sea, something magical about it isn’t there. Also woodland walks but not keen on moorland walks, something to stark about that and a bit scary in my opinion!

  5. Hello tthere
    Last time we were in England, friends took us to Stoke Bruerne where we had lunch in one of the pubs by the canal. It was a glorious day – made even more better by seeing the narrow boats coming up and down the waterway (Grand Union Canal – same one as yours lol) and going through the locks.

    • Thanks for the link Cathy. I will enjoy reading about Stoke Bruerne – a place that I have yet to visit! My youngest son has been there with his school, many years ago and I remember him coming home and telling me that they all went into the souvenir shop afterwards and bought a little something. His friend bought a ballpoint pen and then promptly dropped it in the canal. There were tears! I can’t remember what David bought, but whatever it was, it got home safely.
