The Grand Canal, Portobello

IMG_8339.jpeg

I’m sure there’s more than one Grand Canal, but this one is just four doors down from my house, with George Bernard Shaw’s birthplace right around the corner.  I tried my best to sneak up on the swans, skulking behind the palm trees and willows, but found they aren’t camera shy at all.

Portobello is a great neighborhood, filled with bookshops, small groceries, cafes, second-hand shops, and a bike station, where you can rent a bike very reasonably. The Grand Canal is a great spot for bike riding as well as walking.

The sun is shining warming this mid-October day.

My new book, Look Behind You, is available at http://www.lulu.com/shop/elaine-harootunian-reardon/look-behind-you/paperback/product-24249197.html, as well as Amazon.com.  I’d appreciate honest reviews posted at either/both sites, or at Goodreads.com. Thanks!
