A stroll along the River Weaver.........................................................................

We were out and about again this weekend for a short walk along the River Weaver.
It was a mild for the time of year and unexpected after the stormy weather on Thursday.

 There wasn't much about in terms of wildlife but this pair of swans more than made up for that.

 We walked up as far as Dutton Locks and the shipwreck before retracing our steps.

  The swans swam alongside us for a while as we headed home.

My knees stiffen up for a while after these strolls but the recovery time is getting shorter... 
...it may be the medication helping but at least I am getting out and about in the fresh air.

Keep walking, and keep bringing your camera. It might hurt the body for a while, but it`s like balm for the soul, right? :)

Walking is the best medicine ... and you see nice things. And I love that sunset!

Sounds to me like you are definitely making progress. Maybe the swans hung by hoping to get a bit of stale bread from you. Pretty shots.
