Isnt that just a grand sight ? Sun, water & a narrow boat to mess about on. Definately living the life DTease.

Some years ago we hired a boat on the Thames ,the freedom to go where you fancy is second to none..it is an exhilarating feeling to wake in the morning to the rocking of the boat..I could gladly adjust to living on one..it's nice to moor the boat at wherever you want to go,and just lovely to sleep to the rocking at night..priceless.

Good idea to put pot plants near to the mooring pins

Mick, your frequent references to mooring pins suggest to me that you may be suffering from a mild form of aichmophobia, sometimes referred to as belonephobia, an irrational fear of pointy things. I learned this on my psychology course at Liverpool's John Moore university back in the 60s, just prior to acquiring my wagon driver's degree there.

I once had a boat, it got stuck in a lock,
I shouted to wife below , she said Eh chuck-what?
I said wi are stuck 'ere, wi goin ni where,
she said hang a second I'm doin mi air.
Forget tha rollers, I said wi a shout ,
grab this rope ere I'll get lock keeper out.
I hope he's not legless , wife whispered to me,
last time we came he had two or three.
Now you don't go starting or we'll be stuck in a rut,
Less of your cheek or tha teas in the cut.
Look see its moving as wife stepped onto land ,
well would you believe , now look see that's grand.
Without tha weight lass it's brought itsell free,
Tha'll be sleeping tha self the neet, not bed next to me

What is that?, . . . Upon the 'way, . . .
It floats in black and gold,
Now easy feed for lovely chicks,
Ahead of parents bold.

Take my hand, my Salad Chef
And darling marble-hewn,
There's so much good for us to say;
I'll praise your toast quite soon.

She looks back then makes a comment to hubby, did you remember to lock those double doors?
