Tuesday Photo Challenge : 20th March

After last week’s prompt of TIME, Frank has now given us PLACE.

I’m going to go with the river. These photos were taken in May 2015.
With all this bad weather of late, Hubby and I have really missed the boat and the days of untying the ropes and puttering off for a few days, not that we would have done so in howling gales and rough waters!
It’s almost a year ago that we started our final journey taking her up for brokerage.
It was saying goodbye to a way of life we had enjoyed for three years and moving on from our friends. It was a tough but right decision in the circumstances.

Those last nine days were wonderful. Ninety seven locks, including the Hatton Flight, the canals and Grand Union, going out in style under our terms enjoying the waterways as boaters should.
It was hard to leave her behind, but I wouldn’t change the experience for anything.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
