Another side of canal life

Just a quick update, I popped over to Brittany and as always the canal fellowship is as strong there. We were only passing but were invited onto the hotel boat as there were no other guests and soon there was an afternoon party with all sorts of local beverages being sampled. A fantastic boat for holidays too, run by a delightful British couple.

These locks can only be operated by the official lock keepers and there is no traffic in the winter months. But then if you are moored in a lovely spot with such good company why rush to get anywhere? Next year will do!

  1. Steve, it was a real pleasure showing you a tiny corner of Brittany and having you stay. Come again soon!

  2. So wonderful to be able to keep reading your blogs. Id like to holiday in the hotel on water. Brittany sounds ideal, but ill settle for a cup of tea and cake if your back in England some time soon. Much love go all the family. The Pickens. Xx
