Taking a Walk on the Wild Side- The Canal Way


We went on an educational walk along the Grand Canal. We examined the area of the canal between the 10th and 11th locks. Our guide, Sandra Scully, told us lots about the history of the Grand Canal. We learned

Omer's Lockhouse, 1790

We then went walking in the adjacent fields where we spotted various wildlife, trees, and shrubs. We  went looking for frogs. We found two frogs and some of us were brave enough to hold them!

We had some time to pick wild fruits, including blackberries, rosehips and sloe berries. The blackberries were delicious!
