A sanctuary on the canal

A few weekends back I stayed on a canal boat with Jenni a friend of mine who is a Reiki teacher, makes dream-catchers, grows her own vegetables and lives on a boat. I had a very relaxing time on while I was there.

I watched the world go by, it was great to spend time doing very little and talking lots. Jenni looked after me; making me lovely fresh salads and treating me to fairy cakes. The boat is called ‘Sanctuary’ and I think that is very fitting. She is moored about 35 minutes out of Atherstone on the Coventry Canal in the middle of the countryside, there is a farm shop a good half hours walk away and lots and lots of fields. It was perfect. The boat is a 10 minute walk away from a river that was covered in water lilies and we think we even heard a plop of a frog making a quick exit off a Lilly pad into the river. It was so tranquil, the birds sang from dawn to dusk. I had a great time. Here is a link to Jenni’s website.
