Working hard or living hard?
Society has always taught me that working hard was the highest moral good, both for myself, my family and the society itself. And so, logically enough, not working hard becomes a secular sin and anyone who does not make work a large part of their life is of...

Settling in
Not quite my view from the loo but it illustrates the priorities I have now I am settling in to my new mooring. Five days in and I am feeling a lot more relaxed and much less tired. It's been busy though. The above picture illustrates how I get water. The t...

Arriving
This is my new view from my loo on my new mooring. Not pretty (yet) but having my car right here by my boat is a new experience. For nearly 10 years I have been carting everything in my barrow from the car, down the road, across the lock gate and down the t...

Leaving
This was my last sunset at Hunts Lock; my home mooring for the last 9 years. Today I set off for my new adventure on the Shropshire Union Canal. Leaving is an exhausting business. Practically I had a list of jobs as long as your arm and a lot of them involv...

Healtj and safety versus risk and freedom
This is not the view from my loo today. Rather it is something I stumbled upon during this morning's walk in the woods near Deptmore Lock. And what a wonderful site it was. Using only the natural earth a group of people had sculpted an adventure trail for c...

I feel trees
Yes, my guilty secret is out, I feel trees. I feel them literally. When I come across an old or huge or beautiful tree, like these in Chillington Woods, I lay my hand on the bark and just feel. I feel the texture of the wood. I try to guess how long this tr...

My new view to be
For once this is not my view from my loo, at least not yet! After having a lovely time on the Llangollen, Bonny and I have pottered back down the Shroppie and yesterday moored very close to what will be our new home base. The first photo is taken from the r...

Change is coming (again)
A huge thing just happened yesterday. I have loved mooring at Fradley Junction for the last 9 years, but recently the world has been closing in on this little patch of paradise. Houses are being built ever closer, HS2 will pass close by and now there are pl...

My counter cultural community
Todays view from my loo.... I joined a queue of seven boats this morning for my cruise up the Llangollen, (I was 5th). The lead boat was moving slightly slower than a crawl with plenty of stops at bridges, just in case. It gave me plenty of time for contemp...

Pride comes before...
I have reached the Llangollen Canal and it is as beautiful and as challenging as I remember. The moorings are remote and plentiful, the roads are few and far between and the walks are clearly marked and wonderful. I saw a sign this morning that rather sums ...
