I am very lucky as where I live in the UK has some beautiful countryside and also an amazing canal network.

Canals were needed for the Industrial Revolution in the UK which was creating huge amounts of heavy produce which had to be moved. Roads simply could not handle such weights and the vehicles needed to move this produce did not exist. Canals were the answer to moving heavy objects large distances.

This section of the canal near Marsworth has a lot of locks.

I very nearly bought a canal boat to live on!

Derwent Duck knew that the woman with the camera usually took wildfowl photos and when he realised everyone was safe from her snapping, he spread the word as fast as he could!

  1. I’ve been chatting with the canal wildfowl today too! It’s really restful down there, and I can get loads of work done parked up in the sunshine. Only one cabin cruiser, three horses and about five dog walkers in an hour and a half. Peaceful and bliss. 🙂

    • I ordered a boat and was on the way to selling my house! Then something happened and everything changed. I’m glad with how things worked out but I do still hanker after life on a canal occasionally! 🙂

Go on.....say something to me! You know you want to! Dot knows you want to too!
