Looking through ‘Salmon Waves’ by Paul Sorey towards the locks. Seattle spends a significant part of the city budget on public art.
A boat goes through the Hiram M Chittendon Locks which connect Puget Sound with Washington Lake: one of the few locks separating salt water from fresh. The locks are also some of the largest in the world.
Warning signs on a canal are completely different to the more day to day traffic signs we’re used to.
A good solid memorial bench which leaves the viewer asking questions: who were John and David? Brothers? Friends?
One of them wasn’t that much older than me, which is a sobering thought too.
Our narrowboat pootling across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the Llangollen Canal
This is the canal junction on the Llangollen Canal at Trevor. Going under the bridge takes you to Llangollen; to the left takes to you to rather exciting Pontcysyllte aqueduct, which is the route we took on our boat 🙂
I spotted this little chap at Maesbury canal festival recently. I love how dogs at these and steam fairs often sport a jaunty neckerchief.
