The Picture-book Account

A brief account with pretty pictures

This is the picture book version of The Booze Cruise canal boating holiday, for those of you who take a week to read one paragraph, and find that whole sentences are just too much work.

To enjoy this version of the account just look at the list below and choose a day. You'll be taken to a new page where you can just look at the pretty pictures, and read the (brief) captions that go with them, charting the main events of the week. If you like the look of a certain picture, just click on it and you'll be taken to a large-size version of the picture. And if you suddenly decide you want to know more about a certain event than a caption can tell you, just click the caption that mentions the event and you'll be taken to the appropriate section in the full account.
