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.
