Christmas Day by the Lea (or Lee)

It’s our family custom on Christmas Day to go for a walk down by the River Lea (usually shown on maps with the addition “or Lee”, as both spellings have been used historically). Often it’s been cold and dreich and we’ve seen almost no-one. Two days ago it was a gorgeous sunny day, and there were hundreds of people out.

And some boats were moving:

While others were just parked:

And this is us; Frances, me, and our two young adults, who don’t normally like to be photographed, and who have never appeared here before:

  1. Many thanks…and to you and yours, though not implying ownership, of course. One shouldn’t even say “my cat” etc nowadays. Apparently, the correct approach is “the cat that shares its life with us” or such like. A true minefield 🐈🀯πŸ₯³πŸ˜‹
