A kind of record of a narrow boat and what has to be done to keep her afloat and usable.
We might even be able to tell you where we get to as well.
Hoping you enjoy the intimate detail of boating on the UK canals.
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.
Sonflower at the Cavalcade. Apparently in a very prominant position.
In fact, the boat next to us went for a little cruise leaving us exposed to view. In my rush I hadn't washed her down and thought it would not matter because she would not be exposed to view. Then Y~Not moved out on a trip and there she was exposed. A quick mop over was all I could achieve.
The festival is great. There are crowds of people marching past the stand on the towpath near us and many stopping to chat. Chatter is the orfer of the day with the boaters and bloggers. I have met Jo from nb Hadar, Adam from nb Debdale and a first meeting with Simon from nb Tortoise
