    Oh, Lordy! And that looks like a smart cafΓ© or restaurant behind her, too! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Nothing a couple of designers couldn’t fix up.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not a restaurant.

        Smiling! I know it’s a beauty in itself, but I was watching a programme on a renovation project in Seattle Harbour. I wanted that houseboat πŸ€—πŸ’•

        1. Heyjude says:

          Well this used to be a houseboat, so…

  2. margaret21 says:

    Oh yes. Battered is beautiful.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Used to be a houseboat on the Fal I think. Obviously fell into hard times.

      1. margaret21 says:

        You could rescue it??

        1. Heyjude says:

          I’m not a boat person 🀣🀣

  3. I wonder if someone is going to restore her. She’d be a beauty with a bit of TLC.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well she’s in a shipyard so maybe.

    Oh my what a wonderful find Jude. Love the colours. I hope someone is going to spend too much and fix her up to her glory again.

    1. Heyjude says:

      You fancy the job?

      1. bushboy says:

        A bit busy at the moment I hope you can get down there often to see if any progress is made πŸ™‚

        1. Heyjude says:

          I’ll try.

  6. Sue says:

    Great find, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I knew you’d like this as soon as I saw her.

      1. Sue says:

        Rust! Abandoned!

  7. peggy says:

    Bet when this is restored it will be a good looking boat.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Restoration project or scrap? πŸ™„

      1. peggy says:

        Hope restoration.

  8. beetleypete says:

    I hope they do it up. It would look great of they fully restored it.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Maybe. I’ll have to have a wander that way and see if she is still there.

    Ich liebe solche Motive. So scheinbar alt und abgegriffen haben sie was Besonderes an sich. Besonders die sichtbaren Schichten aus Farbe, Rost und allem, was da noch drunter zu sehen ist… sehr malerisch!

    Liebe Grüße
