It’s getting warmer here, summer finally on its way. Not quite as hot as the European mainland, sweltering in 40 degrees plus, but we are set to top 30 degrees on Saturday, which is quite warm for this little green isle.
I’ve lived in hotter places, but no longer have the benefit of a sea breeze to cool things down. So instead, I like to walk along the canal path, where willows dip over shaded water, and the air always feels a couple of degrees cooler.
Where an open gate leads to an old pub, and a cool drink on green grass. And where my canine companion can cool off her paws before the long walk back home.
Not a bad place to be, on a warm summer’s day.

Looks like a great place to avoid the heat.
it’s always a little bit cooler down there 🙂 I often think of you when I’m walking along the canal, as I remember you saying how you’d love to stay in a narrow boat one day 🙂
That would be so cool. Maybe take a small cruise on a canal.
It would be cool! I think it would suit you 🙂
Well, it looks like experiencing a heatwave is a norm now. Love photo of the canal. Keep cool.
Thanks Suzanne, you too! (and apologies for the delay in responding) 🙂
No worries, Helen 😊
Not bad at all. 🙂
Thank you. There are worse places to spend a hot day 🙂
