Only just seen this but it seems I’m too late ***
The narrow boat was ours and this picture was taken on the banks of the River Avon at Stratford Upon Avon in August 2015.

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.

Lovely! Comments were closed as soon as I saw the post, hours ago. I did my badge and linked back anyway.
I could only do a pingback so doubt if Linda saw it. Pity, as I loved this picture of the boat.
Honestly I’d vote for yours!
The time for submissions just started; we vote next Thursday and the winner is announced next Friday. You have a nice-looking badge there!
Thank you. I couldn’t leave my link in the comments, so thought I’d missed submitting an entry.
This is beautiful! So serene, which seems to be what Linda looks for! Best of luck! 🙂
Thanks Melanie. I hope I was in time to submit an entry.
Looks like a beautiful and peaceful place for boating. Thanks for sharing your photo. 🙂
You’re welcome. It’s one of my favourites
I really like your badge. I’d vote for it, but I kinda hafta vote for my own feeble effort so that it gets at least one vote. 🤷🏻♂️
I appreciate the thought though!
Linda just opened her comments! I suggest dropping your link ASAP!
Oh! Di I love that calming badge🌹
Thanks Willow. Here’s hoping!
Oh – that’s a great photo for the badge, nice job!!
Beautiful photo! Thanks so much for entering, and good luck! 🙂
Thanks Linda. Good luck to everyone. There are some beauties this year.

I’d sure like to be in that canoe. Not the one rowing though.
It was a lucky picture and everything framed up so nicely. Home at the time was the narrow boat on the opposite bank.
Those must have been interesting times!
We wouldn’t change having those three years for anything. We miss the simplicity of the life, but know we’d made the right decision.
