I feel as though I've been AWOL from the bloggisphere this last week. I have been around but not as much as usual as we've had family staying - my eldest daughter and her family. Anyway, it's been a super week with some very variable weather but Thursday morning was absolutely gorgeous so we took a stroll along the Great Western Canal which runs for eleven miles from Tiverton into the countryside. This is actually only part of a canal, the original plan was to join Bristol to the south coast but they ran out of money, so only our bit got built. The whole length of the canal is now a country park, a haven for wildlife, and a lovely place to spend some time. Here're a few pics including, for Maureen and Juliet, a couple of Devon gates!
Spot the moorhens!
It's the flag season so these lovely yellow flowers are all along the banks.
Certainly this is a place for people who love bridges - which includes me.
Two gates in 'mid-Devon' as promised.
The battery on my camera decided to run out then, which is probably just as well. But anyway, a brief glimpse of my part of the world for anyone who might be interested.
Normal service to be resumed tomorrow. I actually finished a book!
