Today . . .

I don't have a lot of time to write this morning.  We are off bright and early to meet our friends Jo and Colin (remember Jo was the housekeeper at the Big House.)  in a place called Ellesmere where they are today during their Canal Boat holiday.   It should be fun.   I have never been on a Canal Boat, but have always wanted to do a Canal Boat Holiday!

I would think that it would be a most relaxing holiday!  There are canals all over the UK as originally this was the method they used to ship goods back and forth.   A lot of them have been converted into floating hotels which you can rent to move up and down the Canal waterways for a holiday now, and some people even live on them year round!

SO, I am pretty excited about going on one today, and even more excited about seeing Jo and Colin.  They are two of my favourite people.  I'm going to bring the camera so you don't miss a thing!  Should be fun!

Bye bye for now!  Catch you on the flip side!

I hope you enjoy your day. It would be nice to be on the water. I'll be looking forward to hear more about it.

Thanks Suzan. we had a lovely day. Took lots of pictures. Will share as soon as I take them off the camera! xoxo

Thanks Pam. We did have a lovely time, although I crushed my left thumb in the canal boat door. I hope I don't lose the nail, but other than that small mishap, everything went great! Pics to follow soon. xoxo

Thanks Valerie! xoxo

I am sorry about your thumb. That is not fun because we use them so very much and every movement can throb. Hugs.

Just so long as I don't lose my nail Suzan. I will be happy if that doesn't happen! xoxo
