It’s been a very long time since I’ve written and posted on this blog, generally I leave it in Sandra’s capable hands …
However I wanted to select and post some images I took during our 2015 cruising season. Some of these have previously appeared on the blog, but many haven’t; so it’s an opportunity to put a few of my personal favourites together.
The first series takes us from Worcester (our winter mooring) up to Middlewich, then back again to Droitwich and up the flight to Tardebigge.
I’m better at face-to-face communication and capturing pictures to tell stories, than writing, so I’ll let the images talk to you …
The first 10 favourite images of 2015
One of the beautiful swans residing around Diglis Basin in Worcester
The Italianate church high on the hill at Worsley, on the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal
The interior of one of the rock houses at Kinver

This canalside property at Barlaston Boatyard always impresses each time we pass

I hope you’ve enjoyed part 1 – hopefully I’ll get the next four parts posted before Christmas (Sandra will nudge me if I don’t I’m sure!)

Great stuff Barry, really good. Love the colours in the Barlaston photo. I look forward to the next set. Enjoy Willington.
Hi Phil, I have taken the same photo from the same angle everytime I’ve passed there. I’ll get it perfect one day! Hope all is good there in Gissie. Seems to be working out alright here at the marina. Have had a homebrew introduction night and a photography night so far, and had a good weekend trading so it could work out well1 Nice little frost this morning, so winter’s on it’s way.
All good here Barry. Quiz night tonight as usual. You will be very interested in the new Sunshine Brewery on Awapuni Road with their bar area serving a variety of their brews (often up to 9 different ones) with platters. Check it out online if you haven’t already, it’s very popular.
Kia ora Barry and Sandra, we really enjoyed part one of your photos, class,look forward to the rest. David and Makuini
Hi Makuini & David, Hopefully I’ll get to complete all fifty. No guarantees though!!
Just beautiful – you are very talented, Barry.
Robin and Jenny – currently enjoying a caravan trip in little old New Zealand
Hi Robin & Jenny, Thank you. The canals are very easy and obliging subjects!
I like the church at Worsley – looks beautiful and the foreground is a great piece of framing! Cheers, Marilyn
Thanks Marilyn, It was a bit of a bleak day but works well with no leaves to hinder the view.
