Six Word Saturday: Evening scene from the canal towpath

A tranquil find, I wish I’d had more time with those boats …. but there was a train to catch

  1. There is something delightfully traditional about canal boats and towpaths, I agree. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Was it the Wind in the Willows that had something around ‘messing about with boats”?

      • ‘In the story, Mole and Rat are rowing up the river in Rat’s boat. They are discussing nautical things and life in general when Rat is heard to utter, Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.’ 🙂

        That’s it! Thanks, Pete!

  2. Have on my to do list – following canals from Liverpool to Newcastle. 😀

  3. I know that feeling. For me, sometimes by the canal in Nottingham… 🙂 🙂

  4. Love the evening light in this.

    What a great photo. Always so much to capture around canals.

  6. I lived on a houseboat on a canal until our daughter started to walk. Then we moved to dry(and safe)land. Thanks for the memory.

  7. Is this near where you live now then Sue? I like walking tow paths, for one reason they are usually flat!

  8. Must be quite interesting to live on a boat.
