CEES CMMC Photo Challenge…… A Word with a V

ROCKET--034-nb

My Word with a V for Cees Photo Challenge is Vessel.

I can also add that it is a Vintage Vessel.  It is a Narrow Boat pictured at Bath, on the Kennet and Avon Canal.  There once were many different styles of narrowboat also known as working boats.  Before the introduction of railways there once was a network of Canals that crisscrossed the country, much like todays Motorways.  Canals were the mode of transport for goods in the early industrial revolution.  Originally horse drawn, then steam powered and in later years diesel powered, they kept pace as best they were able with transport power progression. 

Today Narrowboats and canals are very much a leisure industry though for some they are a home on the water.

Simple Pleasures……

After a walk at this time of the year (and may be anytime of the year), it is nice to kick off the boots and settle down for a peaceful cup of coffee and of course a biscuit or maybe two…… just a simple pleasure.  🙂

Feet up or working hard at the Office desk…. as always….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
