Today we went to the  harbour to see a barge.We saw three barges. Barges are boats and they are flat at the bottom so they can carry more cargo and so they can travel on a canal because canals are shallow.Some times mice come on the barge and dogs chase them off   Cats don’t  chase them off because they don’t like water  now a days people spend holidays on barges over the summer instead of using them to carry boxes and cargo
