Barry and Pauline HarrisBarry and Pauline and their dog Monty live on their narrowboat Copperkins in the Machine Arm off the BCN at Smethwick NW Birmingham.

They are retired and can go crusing whenever they want to. The weather today is hot and sunny, so off they set without any definite plans of where to head for, but they plan to be gone for a couple of weeks.

I met them around 11am, they had stopped off at Brindley Place moored just outside the National Indoor Arena NIA.

Shown below is a front view of their boat Copperkins.

Bon voyage, we hope you have a great cruise and the weather stays good.
