The Boaters Alphabet (C)

This is another one of an occasional series of entries into my blog. The "Boaters Alphabet" today we have reached the heady heights of the letter "C".


is for the Canal that stretches away to the next of the locks. Rippled water with Reedmace and Willows that weep from the bank. A good depth of water and summers first Dragonflys that dart and dive round our heads. Lazily moving to our next place to stay. With the good company of friends and fresh coffee in hand. The scent of our next meal rising from the galley. Its a hard life and someone has it to do, today its my turn!

Now where did I put my sun cream?
