About 5 minutes journey from my house there is a lovely little pub on the side of the quiet picturesque canal with lots of old rusty canal boats, worn wooden barges and some brand new glistening white boats. If you stroll along the banks of the canal you will be able to take in all the sights of the flowers that are growing like a rainbow and the Fluorescent green lily pads sitting on the water top with the bright yellow sun gleaming down on them and the boats lazily slip on by. It is a great place to waste the day away with your family or walk your dog for an hour or two. All year round the canal is a beautiful, peaceful place to walk especially in winter when the water has a frozen crust of ice and snow. As you walk along the water’s edge the frozen ground crunches below your feet and ducks waddle along the ice looking like drunken skaters.
Beacon Fell is a local beauty spot, with stunning views from every angle, which is just a 10 minute drive from my house. When I am walking up Beacon Fell I never really realise how beautiful it is. Reaching the top I stand and stare at the view taking it all in; Green, brown and gold streams of light enter my sight of vision. The green, grassy hills look as if they’re silhouetting sleeping giants. The wet rain sometimes puts a downer on the delightful walk, but on a nice day the bright face smiling down on you really sets of the pale blue sky dotted with fluffy clouds.
Really you need to take a minute to take a deep breath in and surround your self with the sounds and smells. The smells you smell are newly cut grass mingled in with fresh air. When you tread deeper into the woods, the trees whisper to each other in the wind. You can hear birds tweeting, and occasionally a hoot of an owl. Around you are tree after tree after tree perfect for a game of hide and seek. Children run in and out happily playing with their families and friends.
