We have a friend, Dawn, who flogged her house and bought a narrowboat. A very sensible idea. We were lucky enough to have the chance to stay on board for the weekend recently.
This is the scene on saturday morning. My beer was lovely, you are technically not supposed to drunk 'drive' (reasonable enough tbh) but there is no-one to enforce it!
It is incredibly relaxing being overtaken by walkers, ducks and fast moving fish (probably - the water is not all that clear; you can't be sure if there's any fish in there!)
We got on board at Avoncliffe, and chugged down to Dundas. I cycled back on sunday to get the car, and I have to say it was a lovely ride, with no hills at all!
