so tranquil and a slower pace on life

What a great photo, as usual. Life on the canal is not always tranquil - it can get nervewracking, like our entrance to the Leeds Liverpool at Leeds with the water taking us at speed the wrong way while we were going full engine into the entrance lock.

Nice to see the correct terminology used. i.e Narrowboat not "barge"

Hi, Maggie. I've noticed quite a few comments from yourself regarding Narrowboats. Do you have a boat of your own? If so, what's the name? Love to hear from you.

This pic reminded me of our maiden voyage in our narrow boat in 1985, which took us through Crooke ( and to the pub there, of course)... so I've put some pics up in the Album.
