Brilliant image, Lisl!
Lisl: Thank you, Ray - taken early on New Year's Day
A nice glimpse of that colourful craft.
Lisl: Obviously someone's cherished home
That's quite a mural, Elisabeth, imagine seeing that at distance, it could give you a fright!
Lisl: I did, and it did! Well, not really

Superbes décorations et couleurs, j'adore.
Lisl: I was delighted to see this on the local Canal at the beginning of the year. I had never seen it before
Wow - that's unusual isn't it?
Lisl: Very much so, Elizabeth
Well, then! A bit of the Wild Wild West adorns your own rivers and canals, I see, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes, Ginnie - quite a surprise to find this one

A somewhat in yer face example Lisl
Lisl: Freshly painted, I think, Chris
Bravo pour l'imagination decorative de ce bateau !
Lisl: I wonder what it is like inside, Claudine

Hahaha- where did you find this colourful, crazy boat?
Lisl: Locally on the Kennet & Avon Canal, Philine
Makes me wonder the origin of this? Would the owner be a Native North American or just like the imagery of those times?
Lisl: I guess it was someonewho rather liked the imagery, Mary

What a splendid combination of symbolic other-world imagery and every-day pragmatism.
Lisl: Yes, isn't it, Hugh
belle deco!! amitiés
Lisl: A fine little canal boat
Certainly a most unusual looking craft, it comes complete with a pretty big solar panel I see.
Lisl: Yes - quite a few of the canal boats have them now, Brian
That is a weird looking boat Lisl
Lisl: That's only part of it, Bill!

haha! Well, I suppose that mural is suitable for this setting (presumably) in the Wild West. Not very traditional but quite original.
Lisl: Very untraditional

4 horsemen of the apocalypse with backup by the look of it smile

A solar panel to keep them warm in the British winter smile
Lisl: Quite a few of the canal boats have them now, Louis

Oh well ...[grin]
Lisl: Glad it raised a grin, Richard
Now that is a curious vessel!
Lisl: There are some quite individual people living on the canal, Tom
this is terrific artwork and i like your shot of it, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes, I admired it on a gloomy morning. Thank you, Ayush
fascinating artwork...
Lisl: Rather striking, I thought
