I wish .......

Just walked to the river this morning and spotted this narrowboat going through the lock. The family - husband, wife and 6 year old daughter - have lived on this boat since before the little girl was born. What freedom!
A lovely shot and a lovely way of life !

Having lived on sailboats for many years, I can say that, yes, it is a wonderful life! But I am concerned about another boat coming from the other direction. What will they do? I have never seen a narrowboat but would love to try it.

@stownsend the lock just takes them to a lower or higher part of the river. The river is wide enough for two boats with room to spare

It sounds quite a romantic lifestyle but it must get a bit chilly in winter.

Lovely shot.

@mave Thank you, Mave. I think I see the whole river there so now I understand! So much fun. We did some locks but there would be a few of us in at a time. Always a fun time making new friends - that we would never see again.

Love watching boats .....and locks are fascinating.

I think those narrowboats are wonderful. They are like caravans on water. A lovely shot.

Thanks for viewing and commenting. I love to watch the boats go through the lock and chatting to the people while they wait for it to fill or empty

What an idyllic lifestyle but it won’t all be so I am sure! Lovely shot of their boat

I find these boats fascinating and very appealing although I'm pretty sure I could not live with those space limitations! Good catch.

A lovely ambling pace of life, but I would need more room!
May 9th, 2018  
Amazing freedom, looks warm too! They must home school the little girl!

@happypat I believe they own some land by the river so they have a permanent mooring so she goes to the local school.

@megpicatilly @olivetreeann @carole_sandford @happypat Thanks for commenting. I think I might need more space too although I fancy the life

A lovely scene.

What an amazing carefree life, I'm not sure I would want it permanently though (especially in winter)

You've introduced a lot of us to a neat boat caught in a neat location - gives me a taste of wanderlust.

Lovely capture must be a wonderful life but I would worry about the children if it was me.

A beautiful shot. Mave. It's fun to go through a lock and I also enjoy watching the boats going through by just being an observer.

Of interest: the province of Ontario, Canada where we live has 64 locks.

I agree! I would love to try out living on a narrowboat like this! How exciting! :-)
May 10th, 2018  
A great way to enjoy life. Love this.

Great capture

Great shot! My youngest son always talks about wanting to live on a sailboat!
May 10th, 2018  
What a wonderful life they must have. That’s a lovely capture.
