Spring Beauty

Here are a few pictures of the Lancaster Canal which is a stone's throw away from my house. A beautiful and tranquil location for a walk, a cup of coffee and conversations. 



How I envy these people, who live in these houses hugging the canal





          A bright spring morning and the boat people are flocking to the canal


The Water witch Pub






Lancaster University Student Accommodation


                              Yummy Cappuccino at The Water Witch Pub


                                       The canal frozen in the winter
                                    

                                         And here are a few funny signs

Sign outside the Pub
