Yesterday we had coffee with Neal and Marie, another Aussie couple planning to buy a narrowboat. They had left a comment on the blog saying they were also from central Victoria and that they also had an elderly dog to consider before they could head off to the UK. We couldn't quite believe it when we discovered that they lived just 10 minutes down the road! What a small world it is.
It's always nice to talk narrowboats with someone who is as enthusiastic about them as you are. We chatted about other bloggers, and about the difficulties in planning from so far away. We all just wish we could go browsing narrowboats on the weekend but we have to be content with pictures on the internet.
I wonder which of us will get there first?
