What a lovely peaceful scene..Maggie..where are you,this is just up your street...thank you Ron.


Comment by Garry on 18th June 2017 at 08:00
They are Branta Canadensis Canada Geese. Found all over the UK mainly in lakes.


Comment by Veronica on 18th June 2017 at 09:36
The geese look as if they can't make their minds up 'should we or shouldn't we take the plunge'. It's a lovely photo and near to my roots!
Garry its nice to see your comment- you have been missing as of late!!!


Comment by Fred Mason on 18th June 2017 at 09:45
Gooselers as well as Gongooslers even.

Very peaceful pic, Ron.

Thank you Maureen, we sailed through this scene one lovely Summer Sunday. Lovely people to meet as well as the scenery.


Comment by Garry on 18th June 2017 at 14:52
Thank you Veronica for your kind words. There's nothing wrong love and I'm okay...I think x.


Comment by Ellen on 18th June 2017 at 18:25
Many people,(even in Canada) don't like Canada geese. However, I do,and enjoyed seeing them in England when I visited family and friends!
..Nice picture,by the way,Perhaps I should have said that first. My apologies, and thanks Ron.

I walked along here with a dear friend many years ago. A lovely stretch of the canal.


Comment by Alan on 18th June 2017 at 19:54
We miss you Garry AW.
It's been quiet though.


Comment by Mick on 18th June 2017 at 20:22
irene, lovely stretch of canal, do you know this is in Ince.


Comment by irene roberts on 19th June 2017 at 14:06
Yes, Mick, I recognised it right away. Thanks.


Comment by Janette R on 20th June 2017 at 17:09
Think the stretch of canal farther up on the way to Top Lock is far nicer.
