Occasional tedious ramblings from a feminist, atheist, autistic academic and historic narrow boater who likes cats, beer, tea, and solitude, and is strangely fascinated by the cinema organ.

It's got lumps in it!
Yesterday we went to Shoreham. To look at a sea boat. Yes. I know. In its defence, I will say that it didn't have sails. In fact, it was jolly sweet, an ex Hastings fishing boat, the sort that's designed to sit on the beach when the tide's out. Made of wood (Yes. I know.) The thing is, the sea is very near here, while most of the waterways aren't. If you're going to have two boats, maybe a little variety is in order... Well, early days yet (as we always say). But it's going to be great fun reliving the days of crawling over Whilton, only on the lumpy water.
