Around Timperley

Time flies in between trips.

Just a few snaps have been taken since returning from Scotland and spending time planning future exploits and watching the Rio Olympics.

Meanwhile, some of our local ducks are looking after their second broods, and one of the rich people of Hale seems to have exited his Mercedes rather faster than his footwear permitted…

JJ and Rick joined me for a stroll in intermittent drizzle down the Bridgewater canal towpath to Dunham Massey and back. The majority of the old Linotype Works that we passed is being demolished to make way for housing.

The local cygnets were staying close to their parents.

These boys are causing trouble at Dunham. It’s rumoured that they have been foraging in the ornamental gardens.

The following day, Sue and I enjoyed a trip to meet up with Jon and Eddie at a mutually convenient Thai restaurant. There were no tractors in evidence. Will a postbox do by way of a substitute?

Sadly, we didn’t have time to visit the opera.

Enjoy the hot weather!

I think it's the Invisible Man and his formula needs a little bit of tweaking

Nice example of a Victorian post box but its not a tractor thats for sure.

I thought Conrad might spot the post box, but he seems more interested in tracking down the shoeless man lying under the black Mercedes!
