Crystal balls

I'm thinking of buying a boat to explore England's inland waterways.  Not a little plastic tub, not a gin palace, but an English narrow-boat.  Most of them are 6 feet 10 inches wide, and they tend to be up to 70 feet long.

I went to look at two of them today and I haven't really decided whether to pursue either.  But in the search I came across some great people and this sign on a boat neighbouring one that I was viewing.  It made me smile.

Eerily inaccurate crustal-ball readings - narrowboat, narrow-boat, England, canals, Kennet and Avon.

Or maybe they really live up to their claim!

I could do with some way to see the future.



Have you read the Narrow Dog books? If not, worth reading

The first one is here

Thanks and an enthusiastic 'welcome back' to one of my original readers who has been quiet recently.

That's a good suggestion that I had forgotten about. I think I might have read them years ago and must look for them again.
