Peace, tranquility and the rat race

The Worcester Birmingham canal, linking the river Severn to the industrial Midlands and once a hive of activity, is now a very peaceful place, especially where it meanders through the Worcestershire countryside.

  1. Love the contrast between the new and the old methods of transport. Ducks are brill, I had to look twice to get that some are standing on ice and and others swimming, and that last duck photo is great – that is the sort of pic I never get. Vid wouldn’t work though 😦 and I tried it on here and on youtube. Wanted to see more ducks!!

  2. Oh that’s lovely (I can see it now 🙂 ) maybe Pippa couldn’t see it?? Anyway, I didn’t know ducks could skate !! and, that Apple music (that A really likes or some reason) fitted perfectly with the skating and the mix of clips. So cute.
