Yesterday I took a sunny appreciation canal trip down the nearby Grand Union Canal with other sailing volunteers.

Passing through some of the 18th century locks (the wood etc. has of course been renewed over the years).

This canal was a means of transporting goods during the industrial revolution till later replaced as railways took over. It’s now more of a recreational heaven and home to many travelers and retired folks that wend the waterways enjoying the natural lifestyle.

I often walk or cycle this route enjoying the scenery and exchanging a few words here and there with some of the many colorful characters that populate it (England is well known for its eccentric characters lol!)
