A Walk on the Tame side

It’s the time of year to think about holiday destinations.

How about taking a trip on the canal that flows through Tameside?

You may be amazed and delighted to find out what’s on offer

For accommodation there are rustic chalets.

Take advantage of economy car hire

- or high diving for the adrenaline junkies

Save some of your holiday budget for retail therapy

Be entertained by the humorous locals

There's no shortage of scenic picnic spots

For the culture vultures - there are modern art installations

And after all the fun you can sleep away your stress in luxurious comfort

It’s lovely really - more in part 2.

Lovely set of pictures.

I ought to think of a witty comment but I'm too weary.

Excellent pictures.

But I'm not sure you've quite sold it for me..... :)

There's a book here for you Kaz...brilliant! Glad you didn't get mugged for your digital camera though.

Working title "Far Canal!" but "A walk on the Tame Side" is even better.

Tameside Amenities Marketing department may pay big to have it pulped.

Thanks Gerald - No need to be witty - I’m just glad to have visitors.
Weary? Take mj’s advice.

Nic: Thanks - hope you’re not just being polite.
I’ll do the good bits next time.

mj: I’ve passed on your advice to Gerald.

Dave: Just call me Kaatchi. I’ll see you on that bench.

Murph: Far Canal mate!
Royalties and ransom payments - I can’t go wrong.

All I need now is a dog to provide the human (?) touch for the photos.

Polite? No, sincere! (Which sounds even less so but isn't meant to.

Good photos!

A country walk would be nothing without a burnt-out car.

I'm sure we saw that one last time we visited Denton.

Not that we can crow - our favourite local walk is where the kids shoot swans.

nic: Thanks for sorting that out.
I didn't think you did *polite*.

Geoff: Denton? Surely not!
I didn't think you came north of Watford.

I bet that was the scenic route too!

Look like you have a bunch of holigans in your area, I visited, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, over at marsden, last spring and everything was nice and tidy there.

Phew -- are you having trouble staying with old blogger. Am finding I keep getting a page urging me to migrate to new blogger -- at first it seemed to offer an escape route back to old blogger. I think I've found the only way is to delete cookies and temp files, reboot, then sign in by commenting on a blog that hasn't migrated then afterwards you can reach your old dashboard.

So if it don't work after I've left this here -- I'll be off to the canal and chucking that mattress in!!

MM - I wouldn't like to meander along there at midnight.

Nice to see you Outhouse:
I think Marsden has 'National Trust' status. But I've learned to love this bit with all its faults.

Gerald: Blogger is not urging me at all - perhaps he recognises a genuine 'old blogger' when he sees one!

Thanks for the advice..am I your gateway to the dashboard?

Perhaps it'll float - could be fun

You've sold it to me, have booked already.

Thanks for the dreamy pictures.

Heather: It was the retail therapy that did it - wasn't it?

How very dare you! Nothing can compete with a chalet in Hemsby. As if.

Blogger Gerald England said...

It didn't work -- but it wasn't too bad migrating to beta. I just hope changing my broadband ISP isn't too fraught!

Blogger Heather said...

lol, yes that and the infinity pool I can see conveniently placed just in front of Tesco. Sorry I'm off to pack my bikini.

9:17 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Coolbuddha: Hemsby?
Just Googled it - you mean Pontins!
Ah well - all are welcome here. XX

Gerald: And you said you were weary - now I know why!

Heather: I'm so passé that I had to Google 'infinity pool'as well.
It sounds wonderful - exactly like the one outside that Tesco.

Damn! That cow got in first!

Blogger KAZ said...

But YOU are my first and only love Murph. (Don't tell MrP)

Blogger nuttycow said...

Ooo, a beta commenter. I feel special. Was it good for you Kaz?

And Murph... I am not "that" cow. I am "the" cow. Hurmph
