Wye not go down to the river .....

The usual view from the bridge was different this week - the first week of the school holidays and there was paddling ;-)

It just goes to show how much the level has dropped since the heavy rain of a few weeks ago.

On Monday I met some friends in Hay on Wye that were walking Offa's Dyke.

This is the bottom of one of the bridges over the river. The levels looked really low, we tried to work out where the flood level was but it wasn't obvious...

And an arty shot of shadows ;-)

There was a man standing in the river, we watched for a little while but decided to move on before one of us sneezed and made him wet his trousers....

I'm off to Leighton Buzzard Canal Festival on Saturday, I'm hoping that they are better at moving their barges than they were in Worcester a few weeks ago ;-)

And then it is a cake making day on Sunday for the Air Ambulance sale in Ross on Monday morning. Boy is due to have his stitches out on Monday as well. He is being a good boy, and not being a too demanding patient....

I seem to have been doing too much clicking recently, on their way to me are two sheep fleeces - I wonder what the postman will make of them ;-)

I was never allowed to paddle in the river as a child. I always think I missed out as a result.
