Street Party and Rolt

At our wonderful street party last Friday, our neighbour Steve, hearing we’d bought a narrowboat, nipped home and came back with a 2004 reprint of the 1994 edition of Tom Rolt’s Narrow Boat for me to borrow. He (Steve, not Tom!) hasn’t done any boating for years, but had really enjoyed the book. I suspect he may now be getting some good ideas for this year’s holiday.

Meanwhile I’ve started on this classic. Traditional boaters we may not be (yet), but this looks a fascinating introduction to, among other things, canal and boating history.
