Is it coincidence that I love Who music and PT music in general, own (and live aboard) a Dutch barge and have an English girlfriend, born in London England whose birthday is on the 19th of May? like Pete's (but 1955, not 1945).
This combined with an absolute preference for Apple computers as -among other things- a means to make my own music, largely based on the Million Dollar Riff?

Yes, I call it coincidence, and a happy one.

So when I started digging for PT-info on the internet, a message about Pete's Dutch barge caught my eye, where others might have overlooked it.

After that it was a combination of time, patience and a detective's attitude that led us to the Boat House and the Dutch barge on the Thames in front of it. Do you know the Who's Next DVD? Shot after shot of the Thames, in the foreground the mast of the barge -and the interviewees of course.

Living on a Dutch barge sounds like quite an adventure compared to the quiet life of Connecticut. I've always wanted to take a barge holiday - but a permanent barge holiday sounds like an even better plan. My husband is from the UK and no doubt we'll at least take the short holiday route someday.

Great pics and quite a lovely blog.
