As most of you know by now, on Wednesday I had the good fortune to meet Jo and spend a really lovely day with her in Birmingham. We wandered, joined part of a guided tour and wandered some more. We were both really taken with Birmingham, and had lots of favourite bits, Jo’s most definitely the canal with it’s narrow boats, also one of mine, about equal with the library. So, when I saw this week’s Photo Challenge, I knew I had my photos, maybe Jo will choose the same.
Gas Street Basin with great company, add sunshine, and a glass of something white, sitting outside of a hostelry found by my gorgeous friend, a perfect way to while away the day.

Great take on narrow – and how fun to meet up with Jo! Love the boat art (narrow of course) so much !
Love this take on narrow, Gilly!
Love your narrow boats and their art….and your visiting together.
So glad you and Jo had a brilliant time in Brum. Great photos. I love canals.
What a stroke of luck, Gilly. These beautifully decorated boats are perfect for the challenge. 🙂
How slow am I? (but you know that! 🙂 ) I never even thought of narrow boats when I saw the challenge. Nice one, Gilly, and thank you very much. It wouldn’t have been half so much fun without you.
Love the boats! I am a big fan of photographing boats and have some good shots from Morocco and Sri Lanka on previous blogs. Looks like a fun day indeed!
A colorful series, Love it! The boat is a great capture! 🙂
I have never been on one, but always think it would be my ideal home as then I could move around the country as and when I felt like it. Drawback of course is the lack of a garden. Great take on the challenge and very expressive photos 🙂
Oh how wonderfully perfect! The boats are as colorful and beautiful as they are narrow! ❤
So great to meet fellow bloggers in person. Loved your choices for the week.
Perfect way to wile away the day .. Love the colour on your narrow boats
These colourful, narrow boats are perfect for the theme. I can just picture you and Jo walking about there, smiling ear to ear 🙂
My choice is that party boat. 😀
Love the boats and the art on them. How wonderful you were able to see the sights in this way.
I’d love to take a ride in one of those boats. A great choice for the challenge, Gilly.
I’m happy you and Jo had such a wonderful time. I’m sure you’ll be doing it again.
Have a wonderful week …. 😎
Beautiful photos! Wishing I was with you and Jo in Birmingham 🙂
