Afloat #3

Not sure if being afloat in a barge on the Falkirk wheel in Scotland is my idea of fun- you have to admire the engineering though.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Amazing! I was watching Timothy West and Prunella Scales going through this on a canal boat on TV only last night. It certainly looked an awesome experience. They said it was so well balanced that despite the huge weight of bridge and water being moved it only needed the same amount of power as boiling six kettles.

  2. Recognise this! We’ve done the trip twice – once with visitors, otherwise we wouldn’t have repeated it. But the engineering is amazing, there are nice walks roundabout and it’s near the kelpies so can be the centre of a good day out.
