Midweek Blues -- Who is driving the boat?

You couldn't prove anything by me. Since men do boat handling best I will assume the man is.
The fellow appears to have a rudder handle. Or could there be a real driver inside?

We saw this pretty blue barge boat (also called 'narrow boat' [link]) on the Canal du Midi in Southern France (link). We passed it while we were canal boating just over a month ago.

[Answer: they both are, the lady up front is telling the guy in the back with the rudder where, when, and which way he should go and all the other important driving instructions. Ladies are good at that.]

I am now a charter member of the new MidWeek Blues group, maybe the second person to post, Rebecca, of Dusty Cellar is first. But she started this so she ought to be the first. They post around Wednesday I think.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo below. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions (considering it is for the first time). Just do what I did.

I know a lot of female boat handlers that do the job just as good as any guy. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

I'll admit we are good at backseat driving. Well in this case a front seat driving. :)
