After working nearly all week, Elisabeth finally had some free time, and we went for a walk along the Stoke canal.
Everyone thinks they're such sweet little things.
Every duck we saw was with a partner: it was sweet.
One of the reasons I love walking along the canal is to see the old buildings.
Part of the canal path was getting work done, so we had to be diverted, which led us to a part of Stoke that was like a ghost town: streets of houses completly boarded up.
The sign which caused the argument over how far we had walked (I still think I was right!)
We came across this old abandoned railway track, where we sat to eat our sandwiches. Next time, we'll see where it leads!
Isn't she prettyful?
