Watching the River Flow

On Sunday we took a walk along the River Trent. Just a short drive away from the hubbub of our city we found a beautiful unspoilt spot. 

Cool clear waters to dip our toes into and the melodious sound of the river trickling by. 

Seven cygnets swimming against the tide. 

It was quite magical. 

I think the sunshine helped. 

There is something so calming about water, don't you think? 

Far away from it all yet at the centre of it too.


  1. something so calming, yes. and healing too. beuatiful photos. beautiful place.

  2. I could feel that cool water. This has been my year for paddling too. Sheer bliss.

  8. Lover of water here, sea, lake, river. So soothing, by the sea I can sit for hours in an almost meditative state, my husband asking if we can go yet!!
