On a more peaceful note

Here are some pics from our journey on Friday when we took the boat out.

These were just two of the fields full of Canada and Greylag geese.

These were two different pairs as we were coming back.

These were taken in the marina this morning.
The swan was the perfect height to start twanging our springer rope on the starboard side, then he swam round to the port side.
I noticed two swans sitting on a nest this afternoon, but whether he’s one of the pair I’m not sure.

Still working on our eclipse pictures, so hope to have some for you next time, even if they are a bit by ‘default’. All will be explained in due course.

Signing off for now.
Have a good evening.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Lovely feathered friends photos. Watching them land and take off from the water is so magical. Hope the boat ride was the first of great many successful trips. I’m assuming you have locks to manage and maneuver through? That took some getting used to for my little crew. It always felt like everyone on shore was watching and judging–which they were, because we sucked at it. 😛

    • We got as far as the lock, but haven’t actually been in one yet. Getting back into our berth was a doddle as Hubby is quite proficient at it now. (I’m still a coward, but it will come)
