Out Walking


1. The backdrop as I headed for Roman lakes.
2. A patch of blue sky.
3. Rooting about for water.
4. Heading down hill; stream or footpath?
5. The boat is moored across the valley on the contour where the towpath hedgerow can be seen bordering the lower edge of the green field in the top centre of the picture.

Awaiting Recovery?

(viewed 673 times)
This is allegedly the result of a dispute in November over money, which culminated in this narrowboat being set ablaze. Luckily there was nobody at home at the time even though it was lived aboard.

She is currently abandoned to the elements, presumably until the weather improves! Let's hope someone puts her right again.
