#WRITEPHOTO – BOAT by pensitivity101

A wonderful insight into life on a boat by Di at pensitivity101:

When we decided to downsize, a modest property with two bedrooms and a small garden was our intention. We disposed of most of our excess furniture from the cottage (three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a conservatory) by donating it to charity, keeping enough to furnish our next home.
Except it didn’t work out that way.

Downsizing is one thing, but we went to extremes and ended up in a thimble, having to dispose of everything except what was most precious to us. Even then a few things got sent to charity by mistake and when realised, it was too late to retrieve them.

I have never been a fan of boats. I remember my father had a small one but can’t remember what or ever being in it, and my brother was the harbour’s Water Taxi for a few years before he emigrated to NZ.

  1. Doing this takes more abdominal muscles than I have. Getting rid of everything like this seems a better fit for a young couple who want to try it for a few years.
    Great story. It will have me daydreaming.
