My World (12)

Continuing our walk along Granthams Canal - Taking in the plant life - A little rest - leaning on the fence and just gazing around -


Until we reach the Watering Hole - The Dirty Duck. We take our pint outside and watch -






The graceful swans on the Canal.




Grantham Canal to be continued at a later date. - Next week - we visit Belvoir Castle for an outside concert with Catherine Jenkins.... so hope to see you all there?.


My world and Skywatch - Goes hand in hand.


The Team = Klaus - Sandy - Ivar - Wren - Fishing Guy - Louise.

I'm enjoying the walk around the canal but it'll be fun to take a short break and visit a castle next week.

Beautiful walk, and the swan is fabulous!

Now that's a lovely walk culminating in a little time at the pub. The Dirty Duck is a fine name for such establishment I believe. Out here, there is a Mallard Room, which is a watering hole as well. Now why are these establishments named after ducks?????

Ivar Ivrig said...

A nest place to walk. Very relaxing. Thank you for sharing.

Reader Wil said...

Great walk. Glad we stopped for that pint. Could I park my RV at the Dirty Duck?

From one duck to another ... I think you win, though - mine didn't have a liquor license.

The fluff of a cattail brings warmth in the midst of winter. Thanks for bringing us along on your stroll through Nature.

Arija said...

You're feeding us one worm at a time! They are pretty good worms though so we always come back for more. The first is just yummy.

So many beautiful photos, but the swan is definitely the best!
