The Lancaster Canal

I have been driving over this bridge for a few weeks now taking my DIL’s parents to the doctors clinic in Garstang. They live just over this bridge so today I stopped at the side of the road & took a few photos.
It all looks very beautiful in the Spring sunshine.
One of my friends lives on the right, her garden is the one with the flower pots beyond the hedge.


Three good things:
1. The patient has had his dressings removed today so we are on the mend. Coagulation clinic tomorrow but no need to go on Friday this week! We are winning!
2. Had a long conversation with youngest son in NZ this afternoon. He woke up in the night & rang his mum...bless, it was lovely to talk to him.
3. My friends son in law has today just become Deputy Chief Fire Officer for our county!
It does look lovely.. do they have a problem with flooding?
Nice to have a long chat with your 'Boy'..

How lovely - I presume there are barges passing there from time to time?

Your friend obviously values her privacy - doesn't want the passing boats to see in! I would be the opposite - would want to see them passing! Who is the patient?

@maggiemae DIL Father maggie. There is a gap in the hedge where they feed the ducks, there is a footpath on the left hand side as we look over the bridge, EILEEN gets cross because the people walking along just stop look right into their garden.

It must be lovely to live with the canal at the bottom of your garden.
