Denford Dawdles

We arrived at Denford on Sunday afternoon and moored up on common land immediately above the lock.   Since arriving Jill and I and Mutts have taken advantage of the many footpaths hereabouts and enjoyed a series of circular walks that have taken us to surrounding villages in the shallow Nene valley.   We have walked under big skies to Woodford, Ringstead and Thrapston and loved the beautiful countryside with numerous sightings of red tailed kites, swans on their newly laid eggs and a kingfisher.

 MR and Yarwood breasted up

 Poplars lining the bank of the river at Ringstead

 Acres and acres of oilseed rape flourishing on the valley sides

 Canine fun time - the mud bath...

 Baxter looks on disdainfully as the other three frolic

 Down to the hollow where we will wallow...

Another one of those big skies..


  1. Lou is so jealous - she'd love that big muddy puddle!

    The others don't do water so they'd be 'on shore' with Baxter!

  2. Dear Lou
    Come and see us this summer and we will find a lovely muddy puddle to frolic in!
