“A smaller place with which we resonate is more important than a place of great pilgrimage.”
This quote from Vaclav Cilek is one of my favourites and, in many ways, I feel it captures what we’re aiming to do during our time moored at Clattercote Wharf.
With the kids being so young, and the boat not yet fully renovated, added to the constant demands of simply surviving 21st C. family life; it’s unlikely that we’ll be undertaking long treks on the boat in the near future. So we take pleasure in simply exploring a very small area of waterway, probably little more that 4-5 miles in totality – but boy-oh-boy what times we’re having. The boat, and the canal environment, are quite simply magical places!
