At long, long last, after so many years running a hotel, Bev and I have finally managed to retire. All those activities that other people took for granted but which we had to forgo because of our committment to the hotel, we can now enjoy. We have a small house where we can live like normal people again, and we have bought ourselves a narrowboat in which we plan to explore the waterways of the UK, enjoying the scenery and the wild life on the way. Hopefully, as we get ourselves organised, this web site will reflect the the things that we do, the places we visit and the friends that we meet. We hope that as the site grows, you too will find something of interest in the pages on our activities and travels.
