top 5 and three quarters…joys of boat shopping

1. It’s true. bf and I jumped on a train and went to a small Dutch village where you can buy boats. On a sunny Amsterdam afternoon the only place to be is on your small but sufficient boat gently wading up and down the canals with a glass of wine in hand, dressed in your finest stripes. Of course, our budget is tight but it was so much fun to look. The first joy of boat shopping is the fantasy:

For me:

4. The possibility of saying ‘I have a boat’. Even if it doesn’t look like this:

yacht

but more like this:

fishing-boats-

5. Why stop with the boat…how about a helicopter, D?

I'm a blonde but apart from that, that's pretty much what I see in my mind's eye

3/4.  We left empty handed. Will let you know when we find our dream boat.

    How about a plank of wood, and we’ll just use our feet to kick? I’ve seen some pretty chic flippers online. xx
