Fabulous visitor

Hi Folks.
The waterways supports all sorts of craft, but this is the first Gondola I have seen on the canal and it is most certainly the first one to come into the Saltisford Arm. 
It had come up from Startford-upon-Avon and is heading towards London, so you never know you may see it, if you are that way.

He had come in hoping to have a shower and to find somewhere, where he could have breakfast, but we do not have showers here. However we did give him a few places where he could get a breakfast.
Apparently many Gondola's which finish their working life in Venice make their way to the UK and are restored and then put back to work. This one is The House of Peroni Gondola and will be seen down in London.
It was a real treat having such a wonderful craft in the Arm
