In Appreciation

(viewed 897 times)
This is a 'Hi' to all my moblog friends who drop in from time to time; just to say thanks for your feedback, comments, humour and enthusiasm.

I spent many years travelling the continents of the world dipping into different cultures and meeting people of every persuasion, each time coming away all the richer for the experience. Let me know where you hail from as it may spark a moments recollection of a place in time I can relate to and share.

Towpath Fatalities

(viewed 584 times)
This is the fourth of these wonderful amphibians accidentally killed by cyclists that I've come across over the last few days. Yesterday I was lucky enough to see a large female precariously climb from the canal onto the towpath and tentatively make her way across the towpath into the cool of the brambles and nettles alongside the boat. Please watch out for these delicate creatures underfoot as they seek sanctuary this time of year.

The Harvest Approaches

(viewed 970 times)
In the lengthening shadows of early evening, me and Gunner took a walk through the fields above the canal to enjoy the spectacle and aroma of acres of golden wheat 'cracking' as it ripens in the heat of the summer sun. Amongst the stalks pigeons feasted on the fallout.

Other than the occasional passing cyclist, walker or boat there is little to disturb this peaceful stretch of waterway.
