Laundry Day with NB Poppy

On the road in Ware

There are many ways people who live in narrow boats manage their laundry. Some have enough electrical power to supply an on-board washing machine. This would be very nice. But as a boat that uses very little power and replaces it with a solar panel this isn’t going to be an option. So, you map all of the launderettes that are located within a reasonable hike from the canal. Today the laundry was done by packing it up and walking to Ware were there is a launderette located just outside the center of town and on top of a hill. Ware is about 2.5 miles from Hertford via the tow path. I joked with the laundrette owner that many people have paid good money to take a walking tour of the UK and I get it free with each laundry day. It was overcast but in the mid-60’s so the walk was pleasant and the work kept me very warm. This photo isn’t very picturesque but note the backpack with the clean towels peeking out.
