Todays post was prompted by a post on Amy & James’s ‘Willow’ blog (HERE) which showed images of Roger Fuller’s wonderful boatyard. Roger’s yard, and Pete’s (shown in these photos) are for me places of delight and wonder where, through imagination, skills and years of experience, amazing things happen to seemingly unyielding materials…

My Boys love it too, it’s a place to roam, to learn, experience, to have adventures… and follow the rail tracks to who knows where…

The tracks weave behind boats and through sheds, for five year old Boys it’s all pretty magical…

Where every tarpaulin reveals hidden treasures, oily, grimy delights…

A place that our boat now calls home. And thar she blows, under the tarpaulins of the wet dock…

Is that a vintage engine between the hawthorns???

And there goes the engine… it’s often out and about, up the line…

Treasure everywhere…

And places of escape from the hurly-burly of things…

A strip of canalside land, a place to moor the boat, and perhaps a line of track… Yep, for me that’s the stuff of dreams… One day maybe, one day…
