Ford And Flockhart Holiday On British Canal

Screen couple HARRISON FORD and CALISTA FLOCKHART have shunned the fast Hollywood lifestyle in favour of a four-day canal barge cruise in the tranquil British countryside.

The INDIANA JONES star's sailing skills left walkers in Shropshire, England stunned earlier this week (begs05JUL04) when he took to the controls to steer their rented boat along the meandering stream - a talent he was taught before setting off on his adventure with Flockhart and her three-year-old son LIAM.

And Ford - whose canal travels mark just part of his extended European holiday with the ALLY McBEAL actress - quickly put staff at boat hire firm MASTERMYN GROUP LTD at ease during his training, by announcing he had previous experience of cruising canals.

Company boss COLIN HILL says, "I taught them the laws of the canal and what to do in case of trouble. Mr Ford said he'd last been on a similar boat 30 years previously on the Oxford Canal.

"There was only one problem when the rope got caught round the propeller. But Mr Ford said he managed to free it himself. They were lovely people and at the end Mr Ford wrote me a note saying, 'Many thanks for a great holiday.'"
