(The second floor balcony, in the middle, is where we lived)
(The ducks followed me around the whole time, wonder if they know its me know feeds them from the balcony?)
This part of the canal is right in the city centre of Leeds. It's pretty amazing, I don't think you'd ever know if it wasn't for the looming buildings around. There are an endless stream of ducks, the occasional swan or flock of geese. We've seen minks and foxes. There are hundreds of birds, flowers, berries and beautiful trees. I am going to miss hearing the sound of someone winding the lock open and running onto the balcony to see what the boat is like. I'm going to miss the water freezing in winter and the amazing sound when the rain is heavy. I've got used to the constant trickle of water at night, its pretty soothing. Its such an amazing place. We're moving about 8 miles away but we will only 2 miles away from the another part of the canal, I'm looking forward to exploring.
