Our life and travels throughout 3000 miles of British inland waterways: a bit of canal history, an occasional mystery; spiced with large quantities of love, laughter,and great comaraderie!

It was back in October last year that British ex-pats Mike and Phillida came over from Canada to look at boats in preparation for retirement back in the UK. We communicated for a while via e-mail after Mike found the blog.
It was great meeting them both last year and even better catching up with them now they are afloat.
We enjoyed their company for dinner aboard NB Valerie, and tea on both boats, with long, enjoyable conversations about canals and live-aboard life. Finally it was time to part ways, but not before we found a half downed tree and shared the cutting of some wood for winter warmth.
