Coventry Canals

Just got back from spending a few days on a boat on Coventry Canals and in them. It was very peaceful, no phones, no tele, no computer and no boys.
The boat had a mind of its own, zig-zagging from one side to the other, the engine kept packing in, we hit a few obstacles, fortunately not any of the barges. Hubby fell into the canal on the first day, I thought I had nailed it, but no, I went in a few minutes before we berthed the boat on the last day before coming home.
