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.

After the Parade

It is over.

I have had a wonderful time. The crew left on the 1600 train and I am now waiting for boating friends to go out for an end of festival meal together. All around us the boats are gradually leaving to make their way home and the IWA workers (all volunteers) are breaking camp.

It was really a fun weekend. Already I have been told that there are more boats booked in for next year than the pool can accommodate. After this experience, we will certainly be back next year, wherever we have to moor.

Well done IWA.

AND we had the priviledge of being moored next to the winning 'best boat in show'!

I now wait for a new crew member to join me for the trip back to Banbury. Probably up the Thames.

While I am waiting I have just recharged the stern tube greaser: life goes on.

Hi Peter. It was lovely to see you again and your newly painted boat. Hopefully we will see you again sometime. The Cavalcade was really good wasn't it? Jo
