Photo Pairs

I had to dodge the rain showers to get today's photos, but I suppose it serves me right for leaving it to the last minute!  Here's ...

IN THE WATER & OUT OF THE WATER
 

These were taken just round the corner from home, from the towpath on the opposite side of the canal from the boatyard.
 
Thanks to Helena for creating this wonderful weekly link up.

  1. What a unique boat. What does it do exactly?

    1. They are narrowboats, made to fit the narrow UK canals and locks. Originally working boats for haulage, they are now mostly used for recreation. Some people live on them.

  3. They look so clean! My old boss lived on a narrowboat for a time! I have been following "Great Canal Journeys" on Ch4 and thinking how relaxing the lifestyle seems. (Did you run into Tim and Pru on the Kennet and Avon?!) Also hadn't realised how many other countries had canals - though I managed to miss the Sweden episode.
