Granny - it's official - narrowboats are hot.

Although there are a coupe of things to remember...

Well, well, well Granny Buttons! - I'm honoured to be mentioned on your site! I've dipped into your blog many a time when scanning the net for info on the waterways.

As for not thinking the waterways are hot (or cool) - i have to say i most certainly do! 3 years on since first setting foot aboard, i'm still afloat (even in winter). This year i was exploring the Thames, the Lee and the Grand Union and extolling the virtues of narrowboat adventures to all who would listen!

As for the tone of The Independent article - it was written way back when and they took some creative journalistic license in their portrayal of me. I don't remember making plans to buy in Australia...

Anyways - I haven't written anything specifically about the waterways but they do feature in my blog postings from time to time -

However - because you have drawn my attention to this deficit (in a most charming and flatterific way) i will rectify it immediately. Check back on hotspotting.wordpress.com this weekend...

Keep up the good work and i hope the cold weather isn't playing havoc with Granny's joints.
