The Grand Union Canal

The canal goes all the way from London to Birmingham,
but I just did the bit here...under the Golden Star...called
'You are here!'

You need one of these to drive along it

But that's says...


It's a very popular place to go walkies
Lots of pee mails to catch up on...

I thought I was walking the plank 
but turns out this is called a lock
(there's 166 of these, phew...too much like hard work!)

I'll just admire the scenery and chat to the locals

What's news Mr Big White Duck ?

Oh really..well, there was no need to be so rude

Mum, Mr Big White Duck hissed at me!!!

Loves and licky kisses
Princess Leah 


  1. Can't believe that big, white duck hissed at a Princess! BOL! We've heard about swans..... SHE has recently read some books about people who bought a barge and travelled along the canals, so SHE's jealous.

  2. Oh to have such a boat.... that would be pawsome! Be careful with that big ducks they once nearly ate my momma as she was a puppy :o)

  3. So Leah
    Another a great outing you had!! How is my adoption application going? I truly think I would love being the sis to a Princess and oh the fun we'd have.
    Hugs madi your bfff

    Heaven in a bar of water... (or some other such lyricism..) Meanwhile, Big White Duck may have considered itself the Royalty of that place, your Visitoriness... jus' sayin'... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Mr. White Duck needs to get some manners.

    Aroo to you,

  6. As you say Leah, absolutely no need to be so rude. Does that chap not know you are a Princess?
    Toodle pip!

  7. I heard that all the swans in the UK belong to the queen. Is that true? You'd think he'd be more polite, especially to a princess!

  8. Hi Leah,
    My Mom says geese and swans are the meanest birds she has ever encountered.So beware!!!
    That looks like so much fun!!! I would love to wander along a canal like that.
    Love Noodles

  9. Be careful, those big white ducks are mean!

  10. Oh My! Your canal is much prettier than ours that runs by our house. Ours it dusty with stickery plants on either side. How nice to have grass!

  11. What a beautiful walkie along the canal. You may want to watch out for that big is bigger than you are...EEK!!

  12. What a great place to go for a walk!!! I've been to "You Are Here", but it looked different. Maybe it was during a different season or something.
    Yours sincerely,

  21. It is a canal boat. I have been on one of those, only the one I was on was pulled by horses off to the side because the water was not deep. What fun.
    Thanks for being a friend
