ABC Wednesday - N

Just down the road from Natland is the village of Endmoor and their millennium clock and a little bit of nature surrounding it. What time is it, well look at the numbers. Maybe after a good lunch it will be time to have
a cat nap. Not that this is anywhere near any of the other photographs today for it is way south in the quaint town of Rye. But back on home ground and the
navigable part of Lancaster Canal. Part of the far northern reach is dry because it was cut across by a motorway, but for years there have been plans for it to be re-watered and brought back into navigation, not in my life time I suspect, but it is still pleasant to walk the banks.  This weekend the season for sailing in a 
nifty nautical barge, which has been  laid up for winter, will now be taken up and down the canal by the Lancaster Canal Trust.  If the weather keeps as warm as it has been this week it will be a popular and pleasant trip.  I wonder if the weather will bring nymphs and naiads out on the water, perhaps only the insect variety.

Nip across to ABC Wednesday where there are lots more words starting with N

I sure hope that cannon doesn't go off while the kitty naps.... That would be a terrible way to wake up!!!

Delightful captures for the N Day! Love the napping kitty and the lovely reflections on the water! Hope you're enjoying a wonderful week!

Perhaps I'll share a barge with Leslie, as it is my dream vacation too!
Cute kitty.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I enjoyed my visit to your part of the world. Thanks for the look-see. I hope that the canal gets refilled much sooner than later.

Beautiful images. The Lancter canal is very scenic.
