Canal Walk

Today is our wedding anniversary.  I must say, this past year has gone very quickly.  Was it really twelve months since our 25th anniversary

Today we decided to go for a peaceful stroll along the Leeds to Liverpool canal. 

On previous outings, we've walked the stretch of the canal around Lydiate, Maghull, Melling and Aintree, so today we decided to walk towards Liverpool itself. 

We started our walk at Waterloo, went through Seaforth, Litherland and ended up in Bootle. 

Despite going through some very built-up areas, the canal was lovely and peaceful.

There were plenty of coots and moorhens with their babies. 

The canal itself was mostly clean and looked after, but it was spoilt in a few places by swathes of plastic bottles and cans.  It always makes me sad when I see such ugliness. 

All in all it was a lovely morning.  I need to rest my feet for a while now, but we're off out later for a romantic evening together!

  1. Lovely canal walk, it would make me want to take a fishing net to scoop out that rubbish :)
