Our friend from church was approached by a woman who was there doing a photography retreat with Leah Remillet. She was looking for willing participants, and our friend thought of us! So we rented a car and drove on the left side of the road all the way to a tiny village called Braunston.
Then we had a lot of photographers pointing their cameras at us, some of them had come from Germany, others from all over the UK. I saw it as a gift from the universe - we didn't get our wedding photos from the Temple or our reception in Utah, but we have gotten some pretty cool photo shoot opportunities since!
After taking photos at the property where the retreat was held, we opted to join the photographers at the canals just across the road. For some reason, though, we couldn't find them!
We took a few pictures on Boricua's iPhone while we were walking around the canal looking.
The canal system here in England is pretty cool.
I want to geek out about the canal system but I don't really have time to do that justice right now, so I'll just say that they were important to the Industrial Revolution. Now it is mostly leisure. The section here is called a "lock," and passengers hand open and close those gates in order to raise/lower themselves to the water level of the next section of the canal.
Afterward we explored a bit, this is the "bigger" town south of Braunston, called Daventry.
