    Someones Been A Busy Barnabee!

    These were great little boats when on Lake Windermere (I used to work hiring them out years ago as a teenager in holidays) and having seen MBA's pics of improving and tidying them up Im definitely going to have a hire of them next time Im down on the broads .

    Broad Ambition - Underway on the H2O

    It was a tongue in cheek comment due to fact whenever seen the Rascal on BA in passing that the fenders are always up ! But in future I shall keep my observations and thoughts to myself .

    Caledonian Canal

    We have just spend last week up at loch ness caravan site and the boat traffic on the loch was very quiet with just a few cruisers out and about. Definitely recommend as have others to stop at Falkirk and see the wheel and the spectacular Kelpies - try to view them at dusk as they are spectacular all lit up

    Where Did The Love Affair Begin?

    Growing up on shores of lake windermere and reading all the Ransome books and spending all weekends and holidays sailing on the lake as a child and often camping on an island or somewhere on the shore in my own little swallows and amazons adventure with friends :-)
