Glasgow Canal Adventure

Went on a 7.5 mile (12k) walk along the Glasgow canal system today to get out and enjoy the supposed last bit of Summer. It was the first time I have actually been up to the canals and was amazed at how quiet and peaceful it was up there amongst the urban sprawl of Glasgow.

Was also very surprised to see how little the water is used up there, id expect to see a few house boats, perhaps in Glasgow Councils ongoing wisdom they don’t allow them. It is good to see that there is some use of the water up there with a wakeboarding park. However chugging down a litre of Fermanagh lake water is a bit different from some needles and a trolley in Glasgow’s canal

I also decided to bring along with me my Canon 600 film camera to shoot a roll of film but in the end I dragged the brick of a camera all 7.5 miles and didn’t take a single photo. I did however start taking some videos on my Polaroid Cube in an ongoing plan to perhaps start a vlog for one my projects this year. Perhaps somebody should convince me against it.
