walking past swans

I went walkies yesterday :)  10 miles of mostly flat up in North Shropshire (Prees/Whixall ish).  Nice day out actually - and I'm quite glad it was yesterday and not today, silly weather!

Would anyone be surprised to hear that I went out in shorts?  I guess not, hehe.  This slightly backfired as there were stinging nettles and things, but I survived with just a few scratches and a couple of bites of some variety.  Need to invest in a pair of those trousers that zips off into shorts I think.  New hobby yay (or more correctly, rediscovered old hobby) :D

swans on the canal

Part of the walk was alongside the canal, which was quite interesting as we got to see some of the lifty-uppy bridges (I realise they probably have a more sensible name than that) and also on a disused bit of canal, some swans.  And baby swans.  Then more swans and cygnets actually on the towpath a little bit further on. Evil creatures...

Bit achey today, and there's a few weirdly positioned blisters on my feet.  Ah well.
