The Dogs and Boats of Skipton

Canal Basin  GJC_IMG_5740

On the way home from the Yorkshire Dales, i needed to stop off in Skipton for water for my camel and I opted for a quick wander around the shops. The traveller in me however, drew me to the canal where i came across a few unexpected sights....... little did i know what was around the corner......

who's the joker ?, this is just too much


  1. Love the piccys! better than mine!

  2. Love the photos. We were in Skipton, and next time around I want to get on one of the narrowboats, if that's what they're called there. They looked magical! I'm also a dog lover, so it's fun to see the dogs in your photos. :-)

    Thanks for your kind comment on Cranberry Morning! I'm not usually that concise about England. Just ask my friends. :-)
