About Me

My photo
The name describes my demeanour and voice! I love narrowboating and that is why this blog is mainly about the boat and our interaction with it. I have been keeping a log for Sonflower ever since we bought her and moved onto her as our main residence. Some incidents in our boating life have been hilarious, some scary and some down right dangerous. I cannot tell what will come in the future but you can now share them! The crew are an 'ordinary' couple. The Best Mate and I.

Beautiful blogging

Blogging is not a waste of time. The Best mate often looks across to me and says something like.'blogging again?' But sometimes a little searching around the blogs finds some real gems.

Take this quotation

'A boat is not a destination, nor a conclusion, as a house or a piece of land might be, but a means to reach conclusions and destinations you could only dream of. Everything that hangs in the air above the boat is open-ended. She knows no horizons. For her, anyway, every prospect is an invitation and every casting off an absorption in where she might go. A boat is all beginnings...' Adam Nicholson's 'Seamanship'

My thanks to Nick Holt who blogged this on 24 April 2004
