…then you are about to read over nine thousand words in this post.
Some days I like to go exploring.
Some days I even like to drag Thing One and Thing Two with me.
Yesterday we went exploring on our local canal, and I took my camera.
It’s amazing some days the sights you can discover simply by stepping outside of your front door and going for a walk.
The world is a beautiful place.
This photo was taken just off the canal. We had to scramble over a wall and then down through some woodland and over an overflow for the canal water. Somebody has been gathering and stacking wood here.
This is a derelict house dating back to the 19th centure. It is Riverside House and there are plans to renovate it and transform it into a community hub.
A view of the grounds of Riverside House.
These derelict warehouses are set for demolition in the next few weeks.
They have been part of the scenery at Stourbridge Canal for decades.
What will be put in their place?
I know, it’s just graffiti, but I felt the need to capture it before it disappears.
Another view of a derelict warehouse.
Oh yes, it was cold out there.
But Thing One and Thing Two didn’t moan once.
And neither did they ask when they could go home.
About a gazillion times.
No, they didn’t do that.
