Narrowboat AREandARE

From the 2009 & 2010 tantalising tales, traumas and stunning photographs of Barry (photographer) and Sandra (writer) from New Zealand aboard NB 'Northern Pride', to the stories of their 2013 return journey, purchase of 'AREandARE', progress on sustaining their live aboard continuous cruiser lifestyle, and Barry's quest to gain residency and 'Indefinite Leave to Remain' in UK ...

Barry's photography is back - the first ten ...

Well it's taken a while, we've not posted any of Barry's images of UK for almost twelve months, you've just had to read my ramblings instead!

With time to spare, living currently with my elderly parents, he's just sent me thirty amazing shots of our time here so far, so I thought I'd post ten a day rather than overwhelm you all at once ...

Paddington Basin, Barry's walkabout while we waited for the train to Worcester on our first day back

Little Venice - the delightful boat cafe 

Little Venice - incredible reflections on a crisp spring day

Barry gets his wish for snow, in Lichfield

Sandra, Kath (Sandra's sister), and Pete (Kath's partner), at The Bull in Shenstone

Bowness-on-Windermere, in Worsworth's Lake District - the view from the window of the house we rented for the week - picture perfect

One of the public Lake Windermere cruisers

Ray (my sister Viv's fiancĂ©), and David (my sister Linda's husband), all wrapped up on top of the boat!

Hire boats looking magnificent

Ambleside wharf - looking remarkably similar to Queenstown in New Zealand!

It's wonderful to be able to post Barry's work again - hope you enjoy them and look forward to many more over the coming days, weeks, months and hopefully years!
