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.

And these cuties were adorable:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    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!
