With Gasoline So Expensive Here - There Are Few Motor Homes But Plenty of Canal Campers

England is criss-crossed with canals. Today while walking to the Vespa place - I stumbled onto this canal and a few canal boats. They reminded me a bit of Mike Fink's Keel Boats in the Disney movies. They are long - skinny - and low. There is a place near our apartment called Camden Locks where you can watch the boats go up and down. In this video you see a pretty girl steering her home under the bridge.

"Low bridge - everybody down - low bridge - for we're coming to a town."

"You'll always know your neighbor - you'll always know your gal - if you ever navigated on the Erie Canal."
