Cooling off on the Canal

This week's glimpse of My World shows you the Ashton Canal at Portland Basin in Ashton.

It was a hot weekend and there is something cooling about just being down by the water on a hot day. Even better than being by the water is being in the water and, amongst all the big steel narrowboats, this gentleman was enjoying a pootle about in a small boat. It looks fun but I did worry about how sunburnt he'd be by the end of the day!

"Stamford Street" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.


  1. Looks like he's having fun!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  2. Looks like a fun way to spend a sunny day, not that we have had many of those in the UK recently.


  3. Great way to spend a hot day. Is he wearing any clothes?

  4. What a wonderful spot for a hot day. Right now it is a killer outside and I am in the bedroom with the AC on. We have a creek, but it is just too hot to go out. Love the shot with the grand old bridge in the background. Nice composition. Being so in love with your little part of the world I am now your 106th follower. genie

  5. Not sure if he's wearing any clothes, but those geese are having a good 'gander'!!
