On Sunday I went on a day trip on a canal boat! It was quite fun, until it started raining and then I began to get cabin fever. And when we crashed and thought the boat was going to sink wasn't much fun either! I don't think I'm cut out for a life of boating, but it was fun for a day. It was a nice way to see the countryside. When I got home though I had that horrible rocking feeling you get after being on a boat - there isn't even a current on the canal so god help me on a river!
I saw a Rosie & Jim boat though which made my day! When I was little I was obsessed with Rosie & Jim and my Mum searched everywhere to find me a Rosie doll.
I decided to brave the rain with my umberella as I started to get cabin fever. The cabin was very small and with 12 people in it, it felt even smaller!
Scott was the captain. I only tried steering once, but I didn't trust myself. Especially after we had our crash (which wasn't my fault by the way, but was kind of scary at the time! We did more damage to the canal bank than to our boat though.)
Have you ever been on a canal boat? Do you have sea legs or are like me and prefer dry land? I don't know why it scared me because I'm quite a good swimmer and the canal is only shallow, but I'd rather get somewhere in a car or plane than a boat.
