Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat 3

So following on from Cecilia

Some other birds heard what I’d said

About how her voice kind of grated

And left me holding my head.

So a few of them got together

To show how birdsong should be

So here’s some more little birdies

Singing their heart out for me!

Meet Bailey the beautiful Blackcap Sitting sunning himself on a twig He seemed to look to the distance Like he couldn't really give a fig!

Meet Bailey the beautiful Blackcap
Sitting sunning himself on a twig
He seemed to look to the distance
Like he couldn’t really give a fig!

But then he noticed Rocky Who was really quite inattentive He shouted "Oy dog go find your bone!" Which I thought was fairly inventive!

But then he noticed Rocky
Who was really quite inattentive
He shouted “Oy dog find your bone!”
Which I thought was fairly inventive!

So then Bailey started to sing

What a joy-it made my heart feel afloat

I know it’s a tentative link

But just listen to his lovely notes

"That's yer lot!" said Bailey And Rocky's coming now So go and find Mr. Robin He's just over there on a bough!

“That’s yer lot!” said Bailey
And Rocky’s coming now
So go and find Mr. Robin
He’s just over there on a bough!

Introducing Rocky!

"What have I missed?" barked Rocky "I couldn't find a bone, I looked and looked and looked and looked It's location to me is unknown!"

“What have I missed?” barked Rocky
“I couldn’t find a bone,
I looked and looked and looked and looked
It’s location to me is unknown!”

But now back to the gorgeous Sir Robin

Sitting aloft in the tree

Feeling so glad of this weather

And waiting patiently for me!

Listen to my wonderful song All warble and tootle and tweet

Listen to my wonderful song
All warble and tootle and tweet

Have you ever ever ever in your long legged life Hear anything half as sweet?

Have you ever ever ever in your long legged life
Heard anything half as sweet?

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat 2

So…following on from my last ‘Afloat’ post, here is my second post on the theme of ‘afloat’.

On the way to NorthWales, along the canal in a narrowboat, you have to cruise through a couple of tunnels, one of them being quite long…..

I can't for the life of me work out how they made these tunnels!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

Oh how I smirked to myself when I saw this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme of Afloat! How easy peasy lemon squeezy to find a photo for this….after all I have only been back for about 4 hours from a holiday on a narrowboat!! Travelling from Ellesmere in Shropshire to Llangollen in North Wales. I could well be posting every day this week!

This was the scene just before the aqueduct that takes your barge from England to North Wales! We were in the pub watching the action!

This next photo is the aqueduct from a distance….

Quite high up (understatement!) and only as wide as a canal boat!

Now for some shots from the aqueduct……

One step to the left and over you'd have gone!
