A walk!

Last Thursday we went out for a walk together. The Oh! Bearded One has been out most days with Meg for a walk but last Thursday was the first time we managed to get out together for a longish walk for a while.
He has to wear glasses for long distances now and you can see his left eye is slightly closed. The healing process isn't quite complete but is going well.

 This is Meg's favorite pass time - playing with her ball on a string. She will 'fetch' it for hours.

Rivers and canals criss cross Cheshire and we live quite close to the Trent & Mersey canal and we often walk along bits of it. On this particular occasion we walked along part of the canal along to Dutton locks and then along the river Weaver to Hunt locks and had lunch in the Leigh Arms. We go here fairly often for lunch, it's good in the summer as you can sit outside and eat.

 This view is looking towards the topside of Dutton locks.
This view is looking back up the river towards the railway viaduct.

 A very mucky Meg!

 A very scary close up of the Oh! Bearded One! He is doing well. He has been driving for a couple of weeks now, during the day, tonight was the first time he has driven in the complete dark. He said it wasn't too bad but a bit tiring. He didn't go too far, just into Warrington and back which is about 18 miles.

Another view looking back from the bottom of Dutton locks towards the railway viaduct.

Further away from the locks showing the lock keepers cottages.

Very little sun that day but it kept dry and wasn't too cold!

He looks good! Not too scary! He would look very sexy piratey with an eye patch! What a beautiful place you live in!

It's good to know he's coming to terms with things and is able to get on.

I bet that walk is beautiful in the spring when the trees are just starting to leaf.

Glad your husband is getting on OK and able to start returning to normal activities.
