Sydney and Elsie have their own Facebook page and they were very lucky to be sent some goodies from an admirer. They are seriously “striking a pose”.
The pros of living by the canal are the scenery, the cons are fox poo!!
Sydney taking in the views of the fishermen on the beach while enjoying the beautiful sunset. Tried to get a picture of them both together, but Elsie was having none of it!!
Beautiful purple flowering Globe Artichoke growing by the side of the canal.
What started of as possibly a rainy day, turned out lovely. Squally clouds over the Channel and far reaching views to Dungeness Power Station. A walk along the promenade brings you into central Hythe. Just off Ladies Walk is Wakefield Walk, with a cricket ground, tennis courts, football pitches and lots of nice wide open spaces. You can hire rowboats for a meander along the canal. The Royal Military Canal itself is an official monument, and has information about it and the builders who built it dotted along the 28 miles of its banks.
So many paths to choose when walking along the canal. What direction to choose, Folkestone or Hythe? There is also the promenade that runs parallel with the canal, so you can easily choose a sea or canal view. The canal is crossed by these bridges that are dotted along the route.
After a paddle in the English Channel to cool the dog’s down, we had a beautiful evening to walk along the canal path to Hythe.
