77/365 Watching the world go by

Spent a very restful hour yesterday, just sitting in our fold-up chairs beside the canal at the top of Caen Hill Locks. Relax and enjoy.

This is how close we were to the waters edge.




with some liquid refreshment




close to some mooring posts




across the canal is a barge moored up




there goes mrs. duck (does her beak look big in this?)




right next to my seat, another mooring post




lots of towpath walkers passed by




a microlite (microlight?) buzzed overhead




a bramble swayed in the breeze




waiting to go down




there's boats down there




coming up




opening the gates




gates open




leaving the lock



time to go home for lunch.
