Along the Canal Bank in March, Cambs

 
A bank holiday Monday stroll along the River Nene heading to the March Town centre. I wanted to take some photos of the town's church named after the saint from the 8th century - a Saxon princess named Wendreda. She lived a quiet contemplative life helping the sick. She came to March, which was then an island in the Fens. Here she died, but not before winning renowned respect for her healing powers. She was the daughter of King Anna of the East Angles. The church is named after her.
 
Along the way, I was clicking at all sorts of things that might do well for the blog. I came across many sights as the people of March enjoyed the bank holiday afternoon.
 
 
 
Everyone and everything was out, including the swans. What was a journey to the church was throwing up all sorts of opportunities for me to learn more about my camera.
 
 

 
 
Also the geese and their goslings upon the river bank. We had to keep our distance because these geese can get into a hissy fit if one goes too close. Therefore going too near goslings was a big no. I took photo from some distance.
 
 
Then we finally got to the church and began to look about and take photos of Saint Wendreda church dedicated to the 8th Century healer and councillor of dark age March.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Then on the way back, I took more pictures of other things that might interest.
