"Barges - I would like to go with you.
I would like to sail the ocean blue".
These are lines from a song that is popular at almost all Girl Guide (and maybe Girl Scout) campfires. I always wondered what was so attractive about a barge. These are the kind of barges that I know about - and I'm sure that the song must be about another kind of barge.
I do think they are interesting and have a kind of weather-beaten beauty of their own. I just wouldn't imagine that traveling the seven seas on one would be all that much fun. There are always barges like this in the water here...loaded as well as empty ones waiting for a load.
