So, when most of us retire, "we could bore ourselves to death, drink ourselves to death, or have a bit of an adventure." The Darlington's chose adventure - taking a narrowboat (a English canalboat) across the Channel and down French waterways with their "narrow dog," Jim the Whippet. With a sense of humor dry as the Sahara, Mr. Darlington guides this adventure with gusto. Sometimes, I got frustrated by his style. Eventually I realized that for me it was more enjoyable in small doses. I would have loved photos in the book (but they can be found on the website narrowdog.com.) I will definitely be looking for their next adventure, Narrow Dog to Indian River.
