I never thought I would see a picture of myself especially on the “interweb” with a silly hat on!
I am Sue, I am Cornish (& proud of it), He is Colin, he is Lochaber (as a lady said when she passed us on the last trip “what a shame!”). We have been bitten by the canal bug & are passionate that this is where we want to be all of the time, exploring the canal network everyday, meeting new faces & seeing new places. As you can see we have already got all the kit for this canal lark, unfortunately the hat plays havoc with the hair but once I’m liveaboard don’t suppose I’ll be caring. We both have a passion for good Real Ale so we will be hunting out some of the best canalside hostelries on our way.
Lochaber is a bit of a gadget freak so this photo was taken by the camera on remote balanced on the roof..nobody else was aboard! We love seeing the wildlife along the way, however managing to get good pictures of it is another thing!
Here are a few we like.
I am longing to get away from the hectic world of Sales, bin the suit, get out of the car that I do 48k miles a year in & enjoy life aboard That’s D’riculous, travelling the canals, developing this blog & hopefully writing the book I have had in my head for over 5yrs now.
Lochaber is desperate to get away from his desk designing timber frame houses & get out on the canals taking photos along the way, he’s quite good at the photo thing. He also wants to learn how to play the new saxophone he has just purchased, I think we will be mooring in quite remote spots for some time, no doubt he will also be finding more gadgets for our nb.
We may at times be accompanied by Lochabers’ teenage daughter Millana who has also fallen in love with the canals & is great at locking not so good at steering the nb yet, given time I’m sure I’ll get a break!
If you see a frantic spaniel swimming behind that is because she has jumped in AGAIN!
I sell books on Amazon & have some quite unusual titles including The Naked Lunch & I Robot, both first additions. The link in the menu down the right hand side of this page will take you directly to my Amazon shop front. I have 750 book to selll before we move onto our boat, have alook you might find something you’ve been looking for.
So if we pass you we will share a smile & a wave but not the beer!
