There has to be a story behind that name
Martin Robbins: It's what amused me, Vintage, unfortunately I don't know the story. Thanks smile

The name fits the reflections too. Are you walking this weekend, or is the ground just too sodden?
Martin Robbins: Thanks Elisabeth!
Tomorrow, I'm starting the Vanguard Way, hopefully it will be dry as forecast (fingers crossed) http://vanguardway.org.uk smile

Cosy, very cosy. They do miss seating with a river view - sundown seat.
Martin Robbins: Maybe they pull out seats, when they want? On this day they'd be forgiven, although the light looks warm it was a cold January day! Thanks Louis smile

I did notice the boat in this shot but I was really taken by the trees.
Martin Robbins: The light was gorgeous at the time and the trees were a draw, too......thanks Mary smile

a wonderful, warm light and a beautiful reflection of the narrowboat in the river - I like the expression 'wibbly wobbly', although I don't know exactly its meaning.
Martin Robbins: Thanks very much Philine smile
Wibbly wobbly is a humorous expression, used for things that wobble (wave like movement) e.g. jelly when shaken. There's also an expression about the 'wobbly wobbly path, which means meandering and long. I hope this helps I did try to find a succinct definition online, but nothing quite captures the essence, more than I've said.

Now I'm not sure if this is a canal or a flooded road; it;s good that the people in the house have their own boat.
Martin Robbins: In these times, it's an advantage to have a boat........this was on the canal. Thanks Alan :
Not only did the owners have a good sense of humour in naming their boat, Martin, but they also picked a lovely spot in which to park.
Martin Robbins: And the light was just right for the shot.........many thanks Beverly smile
It is a great name and I like the appropriate reflection
Martin Robbins: I thought it was funny.....thanks Bill smile
Wonderful light and tones Martin! Lovely capture.
Martin Robbins: Thanks very much Richard!

Thank you very much for your explanation - the words sound and look almost a bit like their meaning.
Martin Robbins: You're welcome and I think you are right about the sound and meaning.
I've since wondered whether the boat is so named because of the meandering nature of canals (built to follow the same level or contour).

"It's a boat! It's a pub! It's both. I love this place. The name is certainly apt as you will feel the wibble wobble of the river at this floating boozer (especially after a pint or two)."- about a pub in London at the Thames!
Martin Robbins: That's true Philine!
With that at the bottom of ones garden no doubt the canal system is your oyster.
Martin Robbins: It must be a pleasure! Thanks Brian smile
Nice to have that moored up at the bottom of the garden
Martin Robbins: Very fortunate......thanks Shane smile
Pretty amazing image Martin!
Martin Robbins: Thanks very much Ronky!
