Preparation for dry dock.

2 Locks / 1 mile

In preparation for going into Winkwell dry dock next Saturday we dropped down through lock 67 to the Apsley Marina for water and a pump out and returned to our original mooring first thing this morning.
This afternoon Brent and Dot went to Halfords and bought a new Kenwood CD/radio/MP3 player which was half price (love those bargains). Brent then got the job of fitting it.

The photo is of an unusual duck? Dot and Brent sighted in St James Park on Friday. Anyone have any ideas on what it is?

As Brent leaves us on Tuesday to fly home to New Zealand and back to work he is going into LondonGreenwich
with Dot for one final visit tomorrow with a trip on the Docklands Light Railway to visit and the sailing ship “Cutty Sark”. He is also hoping to meet up with his sister Tracey for lunch. I will remain on board in case the agency rings me with some work, if not there are still jobs to be done on the boat.
There has been more movement on the canal today than we have seen for some time.
