Day 46: Cruising on Firefly

My friend Christopher very graciously let me stay with him over the weekend and we took his canal boat from Northfields to Islington. This took six hours and we maneuvered through four locks. Despite my never having done this before, Christopher allowed me to take the tiller and I was not terrible at it, in his words. It was one of the most amazing days I have had in a very long time.

That sounds so cool! Does he live on the boat?

Yes, he does live on the boat! It is amazing inside too. It's really, really cool.

Good for you--I was total rubbish at first!

You've stuck "Tea For the Tillerwoman" in my head!

V, that's so cute! I was the tillerwoman, yes.
