Down by the Riverside.

It’s been a while since I have taken my camera with me , along the banks of the Ribble.  Yesterday afternoon sounded a good a time as any. It was hot and sunny and the picnicking world were out in force. I tried to avoid the crowds and see what wildlife was hanging out by the water. Changes are a foot too. The new houses that are being built are creeping closer to the river. I’m not sure what I feel about that.
