Weekend on water.
So much fun staying on a boat! Made the weekend. So central for Ely and surrounding areas. Great welcome and tips on local eateries.

Ely - a view from the canal.
A first-time experience of being on a narrowboat. I was drawn to the quirkiness of the experience taken as a whole. It exceeded my expectations. My fear of not getting a good night’s sleep, given the size of the bed, was unfounded. The setting and the proximity to Ely centre are big plusses too.
