Beautiful, have waked along there many times with my bro-in-law Jimmy.
Yes....another lovely water craft.....and a lovely chocolate Labrador .....if I am not mistaken....not going anywhere near the craft the dog is sitting on....nice one Jeff....cheers!!!
You can see the boat is approaching a nice straight bit of canal because the man as let his missis take over the steering.
One of my happiest memories is when we sailed along this canal. It is a beautiful canal and the people we met were great as well. I could steer just as well as my husband could, and work the locks as well. There is an art to it.
Mick, you MCP , you !
Well Mick......you just spoilt my comments on this lovely picture!!!Was going to say.....usualfella...leaving his wife to do the work whilst he reads his book !..........beautiful dog who hasn`t a care in the world!
He's not reading a book - he's looking at the canal guide, and he's telling her he's sure she should have turned right, not left, at the bottom of the Wigan flight to get to the pier.
Thanks for comments everyone.
