Short on choice

Well the PLAN was to “sit it out” today, we knew the weather forecast was (nearly) Force 9 gales with torrential rain. But it gets better over the weekend, so they say...
 
So here's some oddball photos on an oddball day:
 
First of all, may I present the fattest water hen in the world…

And this one wins the award for most people and animals in a 5 foot dinghy without capsizing…

If you look carefully, you can just see a pair of feet at the back, they belong to the guy who was steering, but he must’ve got tired and laid down for a rest. Thing is he hadn’t got a clue it was taking on water underneath his propped up legs. Just a bit more human ballast at the front and the whole thing would’ve sunk or popped.
 
Which brings up a vision of the dinghy zooming up the canal while making a loud farting sound. Meantime the bewildered humans and canine remain sitting on top of the water for a second or two, before going under…
 
This one wins the award for the ugliest gargoyle in the sky profile. Eerie or what..?

From beast to beauty, water lilies still flowering…

Rosehips still hippying…
