Whipsnade in April

I spent a lovely sunny Saturday at Whipsnade with some friends.  Here are a few of my favourite shots.

and one of my companions for the day
and I could not resist a little people watching, watching people watching!

Thank you everyone for a lovely day out

The Grand Union Canal at Bulbourne

A Sunday afternoon Stroll by the Canal.  The skys and the reflections were beautiful, even if the weather was very indecisive!

I had some company on this wander too

Having walked one way we then went back and walked the other way from the car park and were reminded that canals are all about the transport!

And it was a bit more industrial with some interesting shapes

I loved the colour on the side of the dredger

Just to show I was there too I took advantage of this beautiful old bike

to do this!
Signs of Spring were all around us
And then the sky got really interesting

So we walked back to the pub where we had parked and talked cameras for a while!

A lovely end to a lovely afternoon!

A Sunny Village Walk

An unexpected sunny day and I just had to go for a walk with my camera

The crocus were out
and the snowdrops are not far behind

There was even enough sun to play with shaddows!

and some of the time the sky was even blue

To the Post Office

This week I walked to the post office in the next door village. 

I wore these - which turned out to me a mistake - huge blisters!
