The Pike That Didn't Get Away. Kennet And Avon Canal, Bath, Somerset.

Funny old day yesterday hence the late posting. Attended the funeral of Jan's aunt. She was 87 so had a long happy life. The end was more unpleasant for her so I guess the only sadness was that she had to suffer pain. Other than that it was a nice day celebrating the productive life of a kind woman. The day was bloody exhausting though. A long one that involved a lot of chatting, by the time I got home I couldn't be bothered to eat...so had a drink and fell asleep. Still a break in routine is nice.

Today's shot, well I'm hanging in there with the people shots, although kinda running out! Taken a short while ago on my walk home from work along the Kennet and Avon Canal. As I was walking towards this guy I could see him pulling one fish after the other out of the water. I thought I had missed my opportunity but fortunately he pulled one more almost to order It was the smallest Pike of the lot but I was glad to get it. It wasn't until I got the film back that I realised just how big this guys fingers were! So I can say with my hand on my heart that you should have seen the one that didn't get away! Here's an aerial view of the area.

Oh, je voudais tant que tu te souviennes
Des jours heureux où nous étions amis
En ce temps-là la vie était plus belle
Et le soleil plus brûlant qu'aujourd'hui.

Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle
Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi.
