Lock at Greenber Field

 

It does take two - so they said

 

John's in charge. Don't know if it was a greeting or a hurry up.

 

Nice view looking north, but is it a Wasgig . . .

Coffee beside a renovation project at Gill Hall . . .

Anyone for a spot of trotting

A herd of deer alongside canal

 

 A lovely Spring Sunday scene - walkers, cyclists, fishermen and just messing about in boats
