me on Monday

waving to you all as I enjoy a bit of sunshine through my window after a wet weekend.

Despite the rain we enjoyed a family outing on a canal cruise in the middle of Edinburgh – if you follow the canal it eventually reaches Glasgow (our skipper told us that would take 3 days)


I coincidentally wore the same colour as the boat

We enjoyed cake and plenty of hot tea and a lovely gentle glide along the canal watching people and ducks walking along the path, the wildlife and reflections (more on Friday for 5 in 5) and different architecture and critiquing what people have done to gardens and extensions. We saw some ducklings, swimming fast to avoid the boat – the first I’ve seen this year.

A busy week ahead with the election and then a weekend of rugby 7s.  Hope you all have a good week.

And in 4 weeks time I’ll be talking about a weekend in Bristol and meeting some blogfriends.  I’ve contacted those I know are near Bristol – if I’ve missed anyone who lives near there or wants to travel there on 30th May then let me know and I’ll include you in the finalisation of details.

OOh, I like the sound of the canal trip. It's on my bucket list..and now you're telling me it's do-able in Edinburgh? How did I not know this?!

I hope the sun comes out so you don't spend all week with your hood up

You have colour matched the canal boat beautifully!

I love canal trips, a lovely way of passing a couple of hours.

Oh! colour co-ordinating with a day out! now that is wonderful. Sounds fun. I had a holiday on a canal boat it was just so much fun. Have a nice (dry) week.

Jane said...

Waving back to you! And wishing I could make it to Bristol for your meetup!

I love canals Helena, and didn't realise there is one in Edinburgh. I drove past yesterday across the Firth of Fourth bridge.
I won't be in the Bristol area in May but hope we might be able to meet up in September when I will be visiting Edinburgh and exploring the area on my way. I will message you with more details.
Meantime have lots of fun in Bristol, do visit the camera obscura next to Clifton Suspension bridge if you get a chance.
