Humans of the Waterway: Inger, Cody & Erin

"We're travelling up to Scotland for the school holidays and have stopped off on route to visit the National Waterways Museum. We set off from the south west this morning, so it's quite a long journey and the boat museum at Ellesmere Port seemed a good place to visit on the way to break the journey. It’s a perfect place to stretch our legs and entertain the kids by soaking up all the wonderful boats and history here. There seems to be a boat gathering for Easter so we’ve got lots to look at.

Of course we headed straight for the café first for a much-needed cuppa before we even started exploring the museum! The children were pretty tired and getting fidgety in the car on the motorway, but now they seem to be happily bursting with energy! And they're loving the interactive displays.

I'm head teacher at a primary school in Bristol so my daily life is usually very busy and quite stressful. I love my job but I'm hopeful that our holiday in Scotland is going to give me the space from work to relax for a week. Already, wandering around the boat museum and doing something completely different from my daily routine is surprisingly relaxing. Although there's so much fascinating waterways history and art here, it's tricky not to get excited about all the project ideas I can take back to my school from here."
