Here’s another breadcrumb-of-the-internet post.
An online friend, the irrepressible Ian Hutson, sold his house and bought a narrowboat as a domicile. So long as the coppers don’t catch up with him, he prowls the canals of merrie olde England. A curmudgeon of the first water (see what I did there? canals … water…), he probably delights in telling young hooligans to get ON his lawn, which is, you know, WATER.
ANYWAY, he did a guest post on the wonderful blog of Chris, the Story Reading Ape’s Blog, about wintering on a narrowboat. Geez Louise!
Now, if you don’t know what a narrowboat is (it’s a boat which is narrow, duh), here’s a Wiki article about it.
And here’s one about the history of the British canal system. It goes back a ways. Purty durn cool, if y’ask me.
A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Write about someone or something who lives in or on or around water.
