We decided to have a lovely walk along the canal on Friday, instead of our usual wood walk. The canal is just off the woods and is only a 10 min walk from our house. It is the Leeds/Liverpool canal.
The first thing we noticed before we were on the canal, was this blackberry!! Blackberries in August!!! Now there are LOADS of green ones around here but a ripe one!! It was so bizarre I had to take a picture!!!
Can you make out this bee? They were everywhere!!
This is the path down to the canal. We have to walk down through a field to the bridge then we can walk back along the canal to another bridge and back home.
Lady always has to be first!!
She is so curious!!!
Horses are everywhere round here!!!
These ducks actually came swiming over to see us!! Think they thought we had food - sadly no, just a poo bag!!!
Off again when Lady came to say hi!
Remember that one lonely blackberry we found at the start of our walk??? About half way along the canal there were loads of them!!!!!
I told Darren to give me a clean and empty poo bag and we started to pick blackberries!!! There are loads still to ripen, so we'll be back!!!
I have never known them to be out so early!!!
Plenty to make a crumble!!!!
By the way I made the apple and blackberry crumble yesterday and it was gorgeous!!!!!
