I went down to south at the beginning of April to visit Ben and Lewis, and on the only Sunny day we drove to a different bit of the canal than in my last visit (HERE). We parked up and walked through the grounds of St. Mary’s Church, Linslade. Pilgrims were originally attracted to a holy well on the site during the 10th century. The first church was built in the 12th century, though was rebuilt in the 15th century into the form it is today. We didn’t check to see if it was open, as we were heading to a canal side pub for lunch!
Walking down to the canal on a path running alongside a rolling landscape and Lewis and I took pictures of the trees ( he had my little Fuji for the day 😊 )
The canal was brown due to the heavy rains causing run off from the fields, but this swan didn’t seem bothered
People decorate their canal boats with cool things
We got to The Globe Inn and sat in the garden as it was too nice to go in. The chap in this photo kept staring at us, then looking away, I thought he was just admiring our family genetic beauty, but Ben said he was a person of disrepute and if he didn’t stop looking at us Ben would have to ask him to leave. Luckily the guy got up and started walking up and down in front of the pub which was a relief as Ben asking someone to leave wouldn’t involve any words.
After lunch we crossed over the bridge to the other side of the canal, and walked back to the car.
Along the way there’s a graffiti’d wall Lewis liked the look of
Not sure what this post was all about but I liked it’s ivy coat
This section of the canal didn’t have as many boats on it as the first bit I did, but that didn’t matter, this one’s owners had their washing hanging out
I liked this little barge, and it was reflecting nicely.
We went back past the church, so I took a shot of the grounds
and then we were back to the car. That’s all folks!
