We are very lucky that from where we live we can get to two lovely disused canals within half an hour.

These abandoned waterways have been given over to nature and nature being nature has done what it does best….take over.

On the past two Sundays we have taken a walk along the tow paths of each of them.

Our first walk was at Scarva on a stretch of the Newry Canal.

Our second canal visit was to an area known as the Broad Water on the Lagan Canal, equally beautiful and equally teeming with nature.

There were many other creatures such as giant dragonflies, pretty little damsel flies and other butterflies that completely refused to pose for photos and sometimes the only sound to be heard was the mewing of a buzzard overhead.

I love days like these.

Thanks as always for visiting, have a good week. πŸ™‚
