One of our first sights was a swan on its nest (not sure if it was the male or female)
It kept an eye on us as we passed to make sure her eggs (or brood) were safe from harm.
Seems to me that Buddha is everywhere these days.
Hope that dustpan is not for bailing out !
I thought some of the boats would need their bumpers today as it was already really busy on the canal.
Time for a spot of repairs to the other form of transport
Our first sighting of the bluebells.
Oops ! That's not a bluebell.
You see some strange sights in the woods ..........
Loads of people out walking their dogs - so nice to not be rained on!
New growth springing forth at last.
Anyone know what time it is?
More canal traffic
Told you it was busy
Time for a rest then
Right back downthe canal for a well earned lunch in the pub.
Not sure if this is cherry or apple blossom bt it was beautiful.
Think the bike must be fixednow.
Even the coalman decided it was too busy a day to miss.
And the swan remained dutifully on the nest to make sure the new brood would have a great start.
Everything always looks so much better in lovely sunshine - what a pretty garden .
And finally back at the pub waiting for them to open their doors so took some shots of the hanging basket - here is one of the better ones.
