Having a wander
I made the long journey down to stay with my brother and his wife in South Wales (we were going to my nephew's wedding in Sussex as part of my trip).

Anyway, close beside my brother's house is the Brecon Canal and I did a short walk along it one day. There was a family of Mallards who'd come up onto the towpath, for what reason I've no idea LOL unless it was just to be photographed.

A lovely looking family of Mallards D. Looks as if they are used to people and want a handout (lol). I hope you had a marvelous trip and visit with your family. TFS D!
