Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Grand Union Canal

This is part of the Grand Union Canal which starts in London and finishes in  Birmingham, 137 miles away.
Last week after visiting Perivale Underground station I walked back into London via the Paddington arm of the canal, a distance of about 7 miles.























There were so many reflections it was hard to choose but I think this was my favourite.

  1. The boats are very colourful. I would be worried about the centre of gravity of the garden boat.

  2. Such a pretty canal. It must be nice to live near the water in some of those buildings.

  3. Looks like a nice level walk. Did you end in rain? the last photo looked like rain clouds.

  12. Great walk. That boat (nearly at the end) with all the stuff on top looks like it might collapse due to all the weight on top!

  13. I love the canal boats and imagine what it would be like to stay on one. The one with the garden on top is wonderful!
