What a contrast in weather since Friday!
We’ve had thunder and heavy showers, and the sky is overcast, but it is still oppressively hot and stuffy aboard.

Out on the river was so different. We’d kept the canopy up to give us some protection from the sun, but it was a glorious journey home.
These are some of the shots I took while we were away. I hope you enjoy them.

We mustn’t forget that glorious sunset on night one:

2 swans 2 2 swans
And this is a classic narrowboat shot shortly afterwards.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Loved pic 2 & 3 (from the top).
    Your pics terminology needs adjusting! The view “ahead” is fine, but the view “behind” is oh so not fine. The view “astern” would be much better! 🙂

  3. Gorgeous pictures – looks like a fantastic trip!

  4. You are right, those could very well be paintings!
