Travel Theme: Rivers

Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack?” is up the creek without a paddle – or in other words, would like to see RIVERS this week. If you would like to join in with her challenge then please do. Everyone is welcome.

Having shown several images of my local rivers, the Teme and the Corve, this week I have a couple of shots of the River Severn in Shrewsbury, where it loops around the town almost creating an island.

Above (header) is a photo of the Boathouse. It is situated on the fringes of Frankwell and Kingsland, beside a recently refurbished foot-bridge (below) that carries walkers into Quarry Park. In mid summer the patio buzzes with joyful chatter and clinking glasses as patrons sit with a view across the Severn as it snakes its way through the town.  Surprisingly there aren’t many pubs by the side of the river and this is probably the best. 



The ‘Sabrina’ is available for gentle cruises along the river through Shrewsbury, a nice way to see the neighbours.

Have you taken a river cruise in England?

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Bad Weather

Ed is a truck driving photographer from Tennessee who hosts a photography challenge blog called Sunday Stills here on WordPress.

This week Ed would like to see any BAD WEATHER pics.


And what better weather photos to show you after all the rain we have experienced in the UK this month than floods – these are the River Severn overflowing in Shrewsbury.
