Come on in – the water’s lovely

IMG_7516Took the kayak out on the Oxford Canal today and was rewarded by a grass snake which swam from bank to bank directly in front of me. Just a tiny wake as its head stretched above the water line, but then it was stuck trying to find a way out as it went back and forth in the water next to some sheet piling. For a moment I thought I might even get a chance to lift it out as my good deed for the day, but then it was gone – probably via a soggy underwater hole that led out to the towapth.
