Change: Weekly Photo Challenge

Now you see it, smooth and slick.  It looks as though you could walk on it.  Bottles float on the top of it… green, greasy, smelly…    duckweed, the blight of the boater.  This was the Canal de Pont de Vaux as we made our way back from the River Saone to our port.

And now you don’t…  looking back –  all change…

DSCF4757Where’s it gone?  Why, into our weed filters, clogging up the suction pipes… a nice malodorous job to be undertaken down in the engine room when back in port.  😦

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
