I’ve often thought that it would be nice to live on a narrow boat, travelling along the canals at a leisurely pace, close to nature. No doubt it wouldn’t be quite as good as it first seems, but I bet most people would like to give it a go. It is the simplicity of the life that attracts me, but would this simplicity lead to boredom? I think I’d miss the convenience of pubs, restaurants, shops and not to mention the golf course all within walking distance of the house. Still the dog on the barge seems to be enjoying the life.
