It had to rain today.. yesterday, reasonably fine.. tomorrow.. reasonably fine.. today.. it’s persisting it down! But, we have to move today as we need diesel, a pump out, gas and water.. and we need to be back at Hennef Way on Sunday as I have a van Monday and Tuesday.
As you probably guessed, no GPS track today.. no photo’s today.. as its raining. Plenty of soggy crew though!
It was a fairly easy run with a few bits.. we nearly lost the Sun catcher from the bow due to a tree.. and we passed a dead swan. Tomorrow I will see if we can find it and possibly retrieve it – not because Anna would love a few feathers.. but because I need to give DEFRA a shout so they can collect it and check it died of natural or accidental causes.
The same usual boats are on this stretch as they were 6 months ago, but there are a lot more holiday boats on the move. Also – a residential mooring popped up in Aylesbury… but I don’t think were ready to call it a day on our cruising just yet, plus £5k a year for mooring + council tax (yes, if you have a residential mooring, you get the joy of Band 1 Council tax to pay for also) – is a bit outside of our price band at the moment!
Winter movement planning is under-way.. but there are a lot of stoppages this time round – so we may be forced to winter moor in Banbury.. Not sure yet..
So, it’s a quick one today.. tomorrow back to Banbury.. and all from me for now.
