Some boats make me envious – wide beam barges with bright shiny paintwork; some boats impress – beautiful old wooden cruisers, and some boats really make me smile. These are a few of the latter:
A big orange lifeboat near Kensal Rise on the Grand Union Canal,
Three brightly coloured boats moored near Regent’s Park,
Nemesis is a very modish boat. Can’t help wondering what the interior is like,
Shed looks like… a shed,
And Philona in Little Venice is a classy boat, with its illustrations of dancers and musicians,
Is it a cruiser? Or a narrowboat? Spotted on the River Trent.
And as for this one, on the Thames near Brentford? Words fail me…
