Last weekend I visited some friends who were caravaning in the New Forest. They tried to persuade me to join them in their gypsy ways and buy a van of my own.
Instead, I have bought a boat. I feel this is a much more biblical thing to do, as Jesus was often in a boat, but we have no record of him ever using a caravan. There have been a couple of shameful occasions when I have stayed in a caravan, but generally I feel such contraptions are destined for burning. Being on a boat offers much more scope for spiritual development.
Anyway, we took her out for the first time this evening and enjoyed seeing Poole Harbour from a different angle. Next on the shopping list is a fishing rod so we can have barbequed fish for breakfast, just like Jesus and the apostles.
No doubt my mother will at some point read this and say, "I don't believe he's bought a boat - he's meant to be buying a house." But if it hadn't been a boat it would have been a motorbike - which would you prefer mum?!
