The Swans And The Heron…

Yesterday the good lady needed to visit her special hair person to get the Christmas chop and styling done. I tagged along to Leixlip where she threw me off at Louisa Bridge so I could take a stroll to the next station… Confey, which was close to where the chop shop is located.

I felt like a walk and I also felt like taking the camera for a test run. Well, the repaired lens for an outing. The weather wasn’t the greatest… grey, mizzle… yet, for a few days before Christmas it was mild, if not quite warm. But, a few months without a favourite toy can feel like an eternity so any excuse will do to get out for a walk.

There is quite a lot to see along this shortish section of the Royal Canal but what entertained me the most on the day were the 3 swans and the one heron. The swans each seem to have a character of their own… to be expected, I suppose. Anyway… I took quite a few photos so to do the outing justice I’ll throw in a wee gallery… just for fun…

      I was tempted to walk on to the boats but a train was due so I hopped it back to Kilcock…

      You have fun too… hopefully we’ll soon do a bit of serious boating again…

    Great swan pictures, I was trying to choose a favourite … then I scrolled down and the heron taking off just blew them all out of the water. 😀

    Looks like the repaired lens is working great. Nice shots along the river. Bet it felt good to get out with camera in hand.
