Blue Monday: Alice round the bend

My contribution to Blue Monday features Alice going round the bend on the Peak Forest Canal.

"Alice" is a 32-foot long narrowboat used for day hire and based at the Portland Basin Marina.

This view was taken with a zoom lens from the Manchester Road Bridge. See a longer shot on Hyde DP Xtra.


  1. I thought this is in Florida I just couldn't take if there is a crocodile somewhere hehehe. Very beautiful photo!


  2. I've never been on a boat like this but it must be a restful feeling to float along.

  3. A great little compact boat to travel the canal! Alice in Wonderland????
