OMG It’s actually happened
Today we are officially narrowboat owners – our dream has come true and we are beyond happy 😃
As I mentioned in my previous post, we have been dreaming of owning our own narrowboat for so long and our hopes have been dashed once or twice – but now this is it – we have our fabulous narrowboat.
She is called Hang Loose – and has the Shaka sign painted on the side – the Shaka sign is associated with Hawaiian culture and this is a place that the previous owners of the boat loved.
We have spent today having a walkthrough of the boat with the previous owner and then moving some of our things on – here’s the bedroom looking lovely and cosy
Our schnoodle Tilly is loving it and has found the bed to be very comfortable and she is now snuggled in on the armchair.
So – today is a very happy day – and we would like to raise a glass to my late wonderful brother Dave – who introduced us to narrowboat holidays over 20 years ago and we have loved the canals ever since – so here’s to you Our Dave – we miss you every day ❤️
The marina where we are has been iced over today but hopefully tomorrow we can have a little cruise down the cut.
Here’s to dreams coming true.
