One thing you will notice when walking along English Canals & Waterways is how the water is used as a canvas for what seems to be a work of art. As they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder–we certainly see beauty in here.
Walking along the canal is very relaxing. Crossing over a bridge makes it the more enjoyable as it reminds us that this scene is free, you don’t have to pay any admission fee. Let us help keep our canals and rivers clean and pleasant. Don’t vandalise any of these beloved bridges, they are beautiful in their own right. It’s funny how some of the things we take for granted but when we spend more time with nature, we begin to respect it and we feel the sense of responsibility to care for it and love it even more, and to raise awareness with the community who are yet to discover its beauty.
As you walk along the Grand Union Canal, you will come across small gardens tended by boaters. The gardens seem to be quite a permanent fixture here which suggest a sort of longterm mooring arrangement.
Foxgloves abound along the canal walk during this time of year.
Beautiful waterside gardens are lovely sights to behold in English canals and riverside walks. We never tire of them.
After our lunch in the car, we took the right arm of the canal heading towards Uxbridge.
It’s not hard to imagine the famous Ophelia floating along with this graceful river plants.
Perhaps this is how Shakespeare got his inspiration.
These waterside gardens and flats never fail to impress us. They are always a joy to behold.
Isn’t that garden sweet. Told you…
