Keep you eyes open and you do see some odd sights
What and why was this perched up on the bridge?
Take a close look at the boat in the next photo. It has a strap on front to extend it by two rooms. But it can be jettisoned so that the main boat can be used inithe canals with shorter locks.
And I thought I’d met Captain Jack Sparrow when this lad with ringlets, tri-corner hat and leather jacket turned up to check out his boat. Unfortunately too late, it had sunk, had no engine and had a sunken generator that was no longer two or four stroke but more breast stroke!
All I could do was give him some tea and cake and a lift back to the nearest town.
