So to catch up..... the week before saw us overnighting and staying put but we had a great walk to Streethay. We wanted a price on boat painting, I could not talk to anyone there so left a number, I was phoned back but am waiting now on an email enquiry, recession what recession ?
The towpaths are as full as they will be all year
Darley looking good
The following weekend we were only able to get aboard for the day, and fancied moving Percy, only problem was it was August bank holiday Monday. We were hailed twice by blog readers, sorry I did not get your names, but it was nice to know someone other than me reads my musings.
There were boats moving at very regular intervals and despite volunteers on the locks it still took us over an hour to get past Junction lock.
Zoom in, and check the centre line mooring, to his credit it was well above head height.
What a great sight, we have met Chertsey a few times on the cut and always seem to get the approach shot, a quick hello then the stern shot ....
Not heard much from this fella recently.
We had a nice lunch, winded at the Hatherton junction then a slow cruise back, still many boats on the move after 6pm.
Then back to work !
