On this beautiful, bright and clear day Veronica, Jonathan and Don joined me for a stretch of the Grand Union Canal, and we set off under a wide blue sky.
The trees are now mostly bare and the winter sun streamed through the branches on to our faces for the first part of the walk. There was quite a lot of boat life to see and sometimes their canalside gardens. Also a good sprinkling of waterfowl.
We continued on past various locks and found a sunny picnic table for lunch followed by a sunny waterside corner outside the next pub.
We continued on to the Three Horseshoes where I had rembered cream teas – sadly an illusion. We made do with tea, pudding and mince pies.
Although flat the walk was varied and a good opportunity for those of us who have restrictions to walk a bit further than usual. We arrived at the station in the daylight and just had to wait a little there because of an earlier signal failure.
