A face at the window.

Mooring on the towpath means that mostly all you see is people from the knees down.
Occasionally a dog will come up to the window for a closer look and when we moor in Woolhampton the pirate cat peers through the window at us.
My favourite is small children, especially toddlers who squat down to peer in, we always give them a friendly wave and reassure their parents/grandparents that we don't mind.
We even sometimes get adults bending over to peer in, a lot of boaters keep their blinds and curtains closed on the towpath side whereas I close mine only if the sun is beating in. So mine is needed of the few boat you can peer in to.
