Back To The River

I went to visit my dad yesterday, to see how he is doing after his recent back operation, and I had to pass through Tewkesbury. I stopped by one of the bridges to take a handful of photos. None of them were anything special but I quite liked this one. The weather is fantastic at the moment. It would have been a great day for jumping on a boat, chugging off down the Avon and finding a nice spot for a picnic, but I had to check on the patient! He is doing very well. The pain he has had in his leg for many years has gone, he is just a bit sore from the surgery. Well, I suppose having a disc removed would make you a bit sore!

All the best to you dad, Marley. Sounds like the surgeons did a great job. :)

The photo is wonderful (that scene would make a lovely painting).

Glad to know your dad is getting better.

Hey your shot makes me feel like leaving my never-ending work and just go out there to enjoy the sun and water!

That is a good picture - what a gorgeous day to be messing about on the river.

Glad to hear your dad's doing well - here's hoping for a full (and quick!) recovery.

Sorry I've not commented on the blog for a few days - real life and all that, you know how it is! Just catching up with everyone now!
