Dock of the day.

Could you imagine a better spot to spend a sunny afternoon, you could just sit here and watch the world go by. Having a house that backs on to the canal myself (although from 3 fields away) I can appreciate how great it must be to have the canal at the bottom of your garden, for us seeing the first boats moored up in the spring is a definite sign that the winter has ended and from then on it’s an ever changing scene of boats and people until the autumn. Having your own mooring and boat, even one this small, must be fantastic, imagine a late summer evening, your friends sitting on the dock and sausages cooking on the barbecue, and a bag of beers cooling in the canal.

Jen, cannot get onto your blog so i hope you will see this

As for video on the side just add a HTML box from the options then copy the code from your favorite you tube vid, you may need to adjust the size in the code(2, 3 digit number repeated twice in the code, i 1/2 them both to get it to fit). Mail me if you need any more help, and enjoy blogging.

I do understand the magic of a dock and the water it sits on. Thank you for sharing the beauty you find. I hope you don't mind me sharing mine with you:

how very true... Just having the water is a blessing for so many. I recently moved into a town with the river across the street and will never get spoiled. It's so easy to over look it but with each day a new surprise, a bald eagle over head, fly fisherman waist deep or kids playing under the bridge in the cooling currents. And your blog here about the boat will help remind so many that there are times we all need to just slow down with daily life...

this is a beautiful shot, love the tones and the reflection. I've enjoyed your canal pics very much, I used to live near a canal years ago, it's nice. And thanks for visiting my blog :0).

Hey Brett I feel like I have let everyone down because I've been on holiday for the last week and haven't posted a THING - and I didn't even tell anyone!

So anyway your snaps are as great as always and it looks like your stream of people has slowed but is still far bigger than it was before. Keep it up!
Ciao

Your photos are getting better and better, it seem that you have an attachment to boats, I know I do.

That's would be a wonderful spot to wake up to every morning. I've thought about owning a place like that when I get the money. For now though, just have to take life one day at a time.

I love the photos you take. I live near the beach and work in a park (not as a park keeper, but my place of work is actually in a park). Watchig it chande from season to season is a beautiful thing. Make you glad to be alive. Keep up the good work. xxx

That picture just brightened my day while I sit and pretend to work in my not-so-fun work place. Thank you, thank you, I can't wait to see more!!!

Lovely picture!

bb mcclain said...

Really like your blog. I have a question...How do you get your posted pictures to appear larger? When I post pictures I can only post them in three sizes...small, medium, or large..and my large is shrimp sized compared to some of your larger pics. Am I missing something?

I lived in Chsristchurch Dorset for a year, and yes backing onto a river is wonderful. I am glad to see steady flow of visitors, and not just the usual suspects. Always winning shots and a pleasure to virtually stop by.

Beautiful photograph! so green and the water looks so cool-I live in dry dusty brown California and that photo is like a breath of fresh air-we don't have fresh air here either!

Julia Maree said...

Wow.
I really like your photos they're amazing.
keep snapping.

Ah, I want to live where you live. How exquisitely beautiful all your photos are. Very crisp and clear and colorful and exotic. I AM a confirmed anglophile, btw.

Suzanne said...

You would have to pry me up off the grass! That looks so inviting!

Maki said...

Just simply a stunning photo!!!! Beautiful!!! I can feel the stillness of everything that surrounds the boat...

Absolutely stunning pic. You just inspired me to do the same with my town. I stay in Kleinmond in South- Africa. My pics will be coming soon!

Michaela said...

It looks as if someone painted on the water. I'm loving your photos by the way!
