ok, it’s a canal, but allow me some licence. after spending yesterday watching the pour souls suffer the horrendous conditions at the 24hr Mountain Mayhem event a little showery rain wasn’t going to stop me going out. i wasn’t banking on 3 separate car drivers trying to kill me, what is wrong with these people!. i took the semi long way to the bottom of the canal and made my way back up, if you read this blog you might recall Ben and i encountering a swan defending her nest, so, when i rounded a bend and came across the sight above i was more than a little wary of imminent swan attack. there was a bit of a stand off as i positioned the bike and camera and i edged ever closer without reaction from the parent (the other is just out of shot in the water) i got a little braver as the swan moved slightly closer to the back, then i swung a leg over the bike and slowly moved forward……with no reaction from the bird, PHEW!
