Ebury Way and Grand Union Canal Rickmansworth
A pleasant day out in Buckinghamshire. Spent the morning catching up with an old friend at Rickmansworth then a walk in the country and by the Grand Union Canal, enjoying the good weather and the abundance of public footpaths. It was nice to spend a morning with someone I’ve known for years – very easy conversation. But I think I have caught the Irish disease as I found I couldn’t stop talking! Bacon sandwiches and cups of tea for lunch – what could be better?
In the afternoon, family arrived so plenty more catching up to be done, then some shopping for tomorrow’s gathering. Val arriving from Dublin after a shift at the museum, later this evening.
A nice, relaxing, day catching up with friends and family who I hadn’t seen for a while.
