Oh, how I wish now I had had some time on a narrow boat along the byways of a canal...they say you are never to old...but would I stand the pace these days ?!
Thanks for the daydreaming Ron.

You can tell the chap on the bridge is wishing he was on the boat.... It looks lovely in the good weather, don't know about sailing the canals through a deluge of rain like we had yesterday afternoon though... Especially if it's leaky on board!

The garden's pretty much gone now Mick .
The kids ripped up most of the plants and chucked 'em in the cut . That tends to dampen ones enthusiasm somewhat eh?
The climbing roses are still there , as is the flowering redcurrant , the monbretia and of course the daffs , although I've noticed lately that the ferns and the brambles are tending to reclaim the area , oh! and the lager cans and bottles of course..........It's history now mate .
Cheers. Ozy .

The great thing about canal boating is that you carry everything with you so, provided you're not in a hurry to get somewhere, if it rains you just pull over and sit it out.

That is the Bridge Pit bridge - as the pit was just adjacent to it - you can still see the capped shaft in the undergrowth- my dad worked there , as he did at the nearby Dairy Pit
