Walking and the Shadow
I knew NB Shadow was going to be arriving in Thrupp sometime so I took a walk up the towpath to enjoy the autumn day and see if I could spot them.
The cement works looked lovely in the light:
I spotted them at Shipton lock so we turned around and raised the lift bridge for them
It was a beautiful day and once they had moored up we took tea together at Annies. Afterwards they took Boots for a walk over the fields while I got on with some reading I needed to do. By the time Boots returned home I had finished my work and he was exhausted so I left him in bed and dined on board Shadow for a most enjoyable evening.
These share boats really are fantastic. This is the first one I have been on and they are so different to my limited experience of hire boats. I wonder why more people don’t have a share. If NB Shadow is anything to go by, they are really rather homely and much more like the boats I have seen people living aboard.
