It’s a lousy, rotten view, but someone’s got to look at it, while it lasts… #narrowboat #boating #ItsNotHackney







Hashtag IT’S NOT HACKNEY. I don’t think that apostrophes are used in hashtags, are they? Punctuation’s probably a bit too grown-up for #hashtagworld.


It may not be the now entirely foreign country of Hackney, but it is a little bit Chilly (sic).

If you’re wondering why I’ve singled out the London borough of Hackney for hoots of derision and buckets of contempt it’s because I stayed there a while ago while on a trip to London.

Never again.

I don’t think I’ll be missed.



    1. Tis indeed. Yonder “The World” has some stunning and magnificent, dramatic scenery, but I do love a gentle bit of England (as well as the rest). πŸ™‚

    1. I am a weird one, I don’t even like the views in marinas, and I really, really don’t like towns – much prefer to be out in the open (where I can see the Establishment approaching, and pop ’em off in plenty of time with the elephant gun). πŸ™‚

      1. Not at all weird. I think there’s a growing number of folk who don’t much like their fellow human beings en masse. I know quite a few, (myself included). Individuals are fine, it’s just when there are so many together.
        I think it might be a form of claustrophobia brought on, in part, by there being just too many people in the world.

  1. I suspect the name itself is a clue to the place – Acne, the pimple on the boil that is London. Perhaps a touch of lancing on our next visit?

  2. Yay, it’s frosty here too but nowhere near as lovely as these pictures. That is a Shredded Wheat field isn’t it?

    1. Mixed Shredded Wheat and Weetabix. I can’t seem to find the fabled field of Coco-Pops anywhere.

      According to the forecast we’re to be frozen for a couple of days and then blown away by eleventy-twelve miles per hour winds. Extra bungees out again on the canvas covers… πŸ˜‰
