Day 35 – Home Sweet Home…

Most of the narrow boats we see along the canal near here are either hired out for holidays/vacations, or belong to people using them for business. However, these few are permanent homes – the boats don’t move from one year to another, and some of the residents have created gardens alongside the tow path, complete even with sheds in some cases!

Day 3 – Messing about in boats…

The Shropshire Union Canal runs close by our house, and it’s a great place for a walk. These two boats are frequently to be seen, selling coal, wood and diesel fuel to other boat owners along the canal, although at this time of year there are very few boats to be seen. Life goes on though…
