Lad in the middle looks like Jason Grimshaw


Comment by PeterP on 23rd March 2016 at 08:28
Nice to see people enjoying them selves boating. Would have thought they would have worn life jackets while they are clinging onto the side of the barge.


Comment by Vb on 23rd March 2016 at 09:44
Can't see any phones.....they must be enjoying themselves! Good for them!


Comment by maggie on 23rd March 2016 at 09:44
I hope they had a good cruise. We have fond memories of our trips. Lovely scenery, good people, great scenery. One really happy afternoon we spent ascending the Wigan Flight on a summer Sunday afternoon. Wonderful.

Nothing much to be said here! Just a boat trip!
The girl/boy grippin the rail wants to be careful!


Comment by A.W. on 23rd March 2016 at 12:32
Looks like fun, wish I was there.


Comment by britboy on 23rd March 2016 at 13:05
Pretty substantial ships bridge/garden shed at the back complete with windscreen wipers, I bet that's ideal for rainy day running.


Comment by christine on 23rd March 2016 at 14:49

Comment by Neil Cain on 23rd March 2016 at 15:09
A tranquil way to travel. Nice reflections


Comment by Alan on 23rd March 2016 at 17:31
Whose Jason Grimshaw???Am I missing something???


Comment by marieM on 23rd March 2016 at 18:52
Is he in Corrie


Comment by Alan on 23rd March 2016 at 21:28
That explains it...I don't watch it!


Comment by Vb on 23rd March 2016 at 23:21
I don't blame you Alan you aren't missing anything! I can't stand any of those soaps! Doom and b-----y gloom! Predictable storylines that make you want to scream! As soon as I hear the theme tunes if I have nodded off I jump up quick and turn the buggers off!

On canal boat safety- the standard instruction on what to do if you fall overboard is, 'Stand up!' Usually you can.


Comment by Johnny on 24th March 2016 at 10:12
I agree with Vb...
These "soaps" are suppose to portray life realistically...They throw in issues so removed from normality...Give me Ena Sharples, Martha Longhurst, Jed Stone and Denis Tanner anyday!
And as for Eastbenders...forget it!


Comment by Alan on 24th March 2016 at 10:26
Heartbeat was the best. 1960s great.


Comment by Vb on 24th March 2016 at 14:23
'Allo,'allo ,Rising Damp, Open All Hours, Only Fools, It Ain't Half Hot, Dad's Army,Steptoe and The Two Ronnies (fork handles 4 candles)! I could go on.......! That's just a few. Think I had better shut up now!


Comment by Arthur Haynes on 24th March 2016 at 20:20
Vb those tv programs are comedies not soaps.


Comment by Vb on 24th March 2016 at 22:07
I know Arthur just testing the canal water!!!'
But they were good weren't they?


Comment by Vb on 25th March 2016 at 10:23
