Lovely composition and a nice setting for what I assume are houseboats.

Yes, they are houseboats and people live in it, but this peculiar type are called narrow boats. (I was told that by a British subject here in this site).

Lovely shot Skipper. A delightful scene and the name of the boat made me smile - I guess there is nothing like having an apology ready if you bump into another boat! Lol!

I am pondering about the vessel's name.
Mea culpa means: forgive me. ;)

Yes, a very odd name for a boat!
Mea culpa in Latin means simply my fault. but it has been used for centuries in the liturgy of The Roman Catholic church (mea culpa, mea maxima culpa) as an invocation to God asking for his forgiveness.

Indeed, you are right. It's my fault. I know this phrase from the olden times, when worship was held completely in Latin language. Before the last council.
