With Christmas behind us, it's time to plan for 2015. Still a little too cold for most of us to be afloat, but the armchair adventurers are poring over maps and brochures, or gloomily estimating how much work will be required to get their boat ready for the cruising season.
The house market has not really taken off yet this year, but holiday companies are eager to take your bookings. Take a look at our Cottages and Narrowboat holiday sections to see if anything takes your fancy. Some of the accommodation provides an income that keeps historic buildings alive - a good excuse for taking a holiday!
There's an excellent Welsh business opportunity in the Boats for Sale section - anyone fancy making their living aboard a narrowboat?
Finally, take a look at the worrying news from the Shrewsbury and Newport Canal Trust - can anyone hel them find the final £500,000 to realise their dream?
If you have some pictures and an account of a canal journey you made recently, but don't have a blog to post it, just contact us and we will display it for you
