This was the view from the table we were sitting at, in the pub garden. It was lovely to hear the noise from the water and the weir, while eating a delicious meal and drinking a glass of very chilled rosie wine.
Don't you love this pub's idea for ash tays?....an over turned clay flower pot and tray! They really did cut the smell of stale smoke down.
While we sat there, loads of boats, of all kinds sailed past us and l have put a few in this post. The canal boat was one that made me smile. Good place to be, if for some reason you want to be in another palce than your other half!Ha
This boat below, came from Holland and was perfect, right down to the orchids on one of the window sills.
This small launch, arrived as we did and looked like the couple in it had come to meet another family with children...guessing here but maybe grand-parents visiting? What a lovely way to spend an afternoon..then potter home!
Don't know if you can see it very clearly, but the skipper is smoking a pipe, the smell lingered as he passed by...love the smell of pipes and cigars but cigs..NO WAY!
In the image below is a very tiny ant..the flying kind. They were swarming, so they were every where. Funnily enough they were more trouble earlier in the morning, when l was on Putney High Street, then they were here in the country, by the water!
I admired this man, as it was obvious he was no spring chicken but he was doing his bit to stay young and healthy! Well done him l say!
We were surprised to see this very happy looking Community Support Officer, go and come back along the toe path, while we were there. Nice to know the water ways are being kept safe!
