Wonderful photos and such a nice log of part of your journey. How much longer do you get to roam around the countryside????
Just a few more weeks. I am on my way north to Audlum in Cheshire. Home being Little star’s berth at Overwater Marina. One more visitor from Canada before the end. Then on to Florence for a course in leather making. I am making the most of my first retirement year.
I have so enjoyed reading every one of your accounts of life on the canals, Maggie. Thank you for sharing your experiences. These photos are amazing. I particularly like the composition of the one with daisies in the foreground and a bridge in the background. The field of oats/barley is gorgeous. By the way, manor life looks good on you. Enjoy the time left on the boat, then on to your next adventure in Florence. Hugs. xo xo
So good to hear from you Christine. I miss our afternoons at Jenny’s. How are things going with the changed format?
I must admit that we swap pictures and a friend took the one of the daisies for me because he knew I loved lawn daisies. So sweet of him. I shouldn’t complain, but June is being cold and rainy after such a dry winter. I hope it doesn’t last the whole month! Will keep you all posted!
Beautiful photos, Maggie. I love the daisies and the bridge at the Trout Inn. Also admiring the way you arranged your hair to echo the spires in the background. 😉
Yes, amazing what my hair can look like when I neglect it and there is a bit of wind. Now if only I could get it to look like that all the time.
Wonderful stories and beautiful pictures Maggie, thanks so much. My goodness, the images and pace of life you are showing us are so different from what we see on the BBC news. Between your canal-side perspective and the lovely old locations in our current favourite TV series (Father Brown) we are enjoying our immersion in idyllic England. Unrealistic? No, just another view! Safe travels on the next leg of your adventure.
It is amazing, but there is a lot of that idyllic England around. Quiet villages, canal side pubs, cows and sheep and horses in fields. Well manicured gardens and not so manicured beside the canal, a glimpse into rural life. So different from navigating the London underground, and the noise of the traffic on the streets. Even if we stopped by a rail line most of the trains are commuter trains and did not run overnight. Only one night by a motorway was noisy late into the night.
We need to get some of those pix!
