Indian Takeaway

Ground to a complete halt this morning just as we were about to moor at Lyons Boat Yard for fuel. Something was irretrievably tangled round the prop.
It was this: a saree.

Canal anecdote has it that at Hindu funerals gifts for the departed are wrapped in a saree and thrown into the river or in this case local canal. Having hacked away at the tangled mess around my prop in the murky canal waters for ten minutes I didn't look too closely but dropped it in the rubbish skip. My apologies for this unceremonious disposal if it was a religious offering.
