I dream of...


.... dappled sunshine; hot days that smell of new mown grass, buzzing with insects; the gentle hum and splash of narrowboats gliding up the canal; the distant squeals of children in the park. Lazy days with not much to do except stroll or idle on a bench, watching the world go by and eating ice-cream.

  1. I have a similar dream—we don't have narrowboats on canals, though. ;)

    Lovely scene and beautiful shot!

    1. They were planning on coming but then found out the sky-high rail fares! So they're coming in a few weeks time.

  4. One of these days I would like to travel on one of your canals on a longboat. This one would be good . . .

  5. A lovely shot! I was so pleased when we brought our daughter's American boyfriend to Saltaire, that a couple of barges passed by like that.

  8. That sounds like retirement in summer. Hopefully your dreams will come true.
