So we have cruised November, December, January and February and we have enjoyed it in the main. We recently took a overnight trip to Huddlesford Junction and had a nice meal in the Plough. This is a first for us as we normally are cruising outbound or homeward, the Plough is about 2 hours from our mooring.
One downside, although not encountered on the trip to the Plough is ice. Percy is stripped at the stem post from the cruise in ice bringing him back from Braunston in November/early December. A plan is being hatched to address this combining a cruise in May for my mum to Norbury for them to black Percy. We will get a price for the sign writing to remove the old owners name and add ours.... only question is do we put in Fradley Junction as we did with Waterlily or Derby ....any thoughts?
