Time Away

This is Steve. A very happy Steve. He's about to spend the weekend on the canal with Amelia, Rosie, Jim oh and me!

This is the beautiful Amelia.

This, of course, is Rosie and Jim.

Instant relaxation set in as we chugged along slowly up the canal.
Relaxation that is until we found our first of three locks.

This is Steve. A rather worried looking Steve!

But luckily for us there were lovely helpful people around that helped us through our first one.

Then it all seemed rather easy and by the third one we were actually smiling.

Wow! The ever changing view. The peace. The quiet. Bliss.

The next morning we were greeted with two swans with their six nearly fully grown babies.
They seemed extremely hungry and obviously knew how to play the tourists.

On Sunday the weather was beautiful.

The sky was blue and I even got a go at steering the boat.
(but not for long!)

Halcyon days.

Our last evening was spent here. We stood and watched the sun go down with our neighbours, a meadow full of cows and their curly haired calves.
It has been the most relaxing weekend I have ever had and I just wanted to share a glimpse of it with you.
Have a great weekend. x
