Friday Shoot-Out: A Stroll By The River



The theme for today's Friday Shoot-Out is to get out and about without a car - which suits me fine because I can't drive. Plus you all know I'm a rural girl, and some of my favourite spots aren't even accessible by car.


Just look at the path between the road and the river:


Unfortunately, with my ongoing knee trouble (I've been referred to another physio, if you were wondering) I can't presently walk as far or as painlessly as I used to. However I did enjoy a nice stroll with my husband by this river in Malmesbury.


There was one swan swimming along the river, and further down, another one sleeping on the nest. She (or he) opened one eye to get a look at us when we stopped to take photos, but obviously couldn't be bothered to move.


I had to climb the wall to get this photo of someone's lovely cottage garden:


There were even pretty flowers growing between the stones:

What a beautiful swan! And the view down the narrow path between wall and river is absolutely haunting! I makes me really want to walk down it and see what is at the end.

English gardens are always so impressive. And I love the swans! We only have ducks here. Hope your knee will feel better soon.

What a beautiful tour of your walk! I love the water too, and that Swan is gorgeous...

Love cottages as well...I also feel my knees are not what they used to be, so I move slower than I once did...maybe I will return as a swan!

Oh, my. Those first two photos are so beautiful. I like photos of paths. I can only dream about where they lead.

The third photo, the swan is just gorgeous.

Hope you are able to get around soon. I want to see more of your part of the world in our Friday shoot outs.

I am following now, so I can visit on other days.
