Thanks for 'the walk' and the beautiful pictures. I live near the water for the first time and love it too. I never new there was so much to see and hear.A complete different world.


Thanks so much for this! It is a beautiful place for sure!

What a lovely event to have on your doorstep, and what lovely pictures! It's amazing to think that it's still so frosty in the mornings when it's been so mild this winter too, isn't it? xx


Oh my, I do catch myself being a little jealous that you get to see these sights every day. What a dreamy place to call home. You are very blessed Lucy. Enjoy!


Lucy thanks for sharing such lovely photos. I would love to live there and see such beautiful sites every day. Lucky you!!!!


Both charming and calming !!!The stuff memories are made of for sure :)


What a lovely fun exciting walk with the boats and the colors. Thank you for sharing. I can see a quilt design in those pics candy


Beautiful, beautiful England! Me and my husband were visiting friends in Sheffield two weeks ago, enjoying the beautiful landscape - cities and countryside. Let me also say that I enjoy reading your blog, I also knit and crochet myself. Best reg from Iceland.

Seeing those canal barges makes me remember my own childhood (on the other side of the Pennines). Lovely photos :-)

Our drive to school when the girls were little ran along side the levee of the Mississippi river in Baton Rouge, LA. All we could see of the ocean-going ships moored there were the smokestacks. We always looked for the company logos. I remember one Greek ship had a beige smokestack with a blue lyre on it. They still remember those "ship" sightings, even though they have school children of their own.

How lovely!!! All the wonderful colors wherever we can find them after this long winters slumber is such a respite for the soul...

I love to be out in the morning taking in the gentle stillness as the world awakens. I adore nature's eagerness and it's display through the birds singing and flowers dewy, it's truly delightful.

Thanks for sharing this with us.


Fabulous boats and yes a wonderful place to walk, I may have to just fly on over one day xo


There is a canal town here in Indiana (in the United States). My Shug and I were just wondering if it's still in business or not. They turned it into a crafty, bed & breakfast, touristy town. The last time we were there it was kind of run down a bit, with several buildings for sale. I think I'll try to pay a visit in the next few months and see if it's on the mend.

It must be lovely to have somewhere so peaceful and pretty to walk about in. I live near a large town now but originally came from the countryside so I know how memories work. Just like you with the sea. By the way the yellow and red flags symbolise the county of Lancashire (a dirty word for those who live in Yorkshire).


I love the enamel jugs. I too have over optimistically painted toe nails. But then again they're pretty to look at anyway. Lovely pics.


Hi Lucy, thank you for sharing your beautiful views and happy boats.
I took a photo of that frost and really felt the need to savour every moment of that perfect spring day....it inspired my mandala that you kindly commented on.
How I love this time of year.

What a nice place to walk. Living in California we dont have canals. What are the boats for? Do people live on them? I wish we had your weather! Today its 95 degrees and windy.


lovely to see your photos which brought back happy memories of our few days in your lovely town last year for Yarndale .... and of course the park we wandered through and sat and ate our picnic and of course ran through!! So looking forward to Yarndale 2014 xx lots of love Joy xx


You have one gorgeous neighborhood. ;-)

Do the red and green flowers on the yellow flags symbolize something particular? They look heraldic.


You, and your Little People, definitely are lucky to live where you do. What beautiful colours - a joyous celebration of boatiness (boatyness?) Thank you for sharing these piccies with those of us who live in land-locked counties with barely a puddle to admire ;-)


Beautiful pictures, I really enjoy taking part in local celebrations and this one is particularly colourful
Surprised to see Lancashire roses though!


Sometimes I feel I was born in the wrong country. Looking at all your lovely pictures it makes me feel kind of homesick. One day I would love to visit your town and enjoy all the awesome things that you write about. Sigh.... ;-)

Amy at love made my home

What a beautiful walk, the boats all look fantastic don't they. I love the dragon!! That is so creative isn't it. Glad that you enjoyed yourself. xx
