We have light.

Moored near Lock 67 at Apsley

The weather cleared up mid morning so it was back to work to finish what we started yesterday. Connecting up the headlight was easy and putting the mounts on the front of the cratch for the TV aerial went quite smoothly. However the air horns that I want to fit may be a bit of a head ache so I have left that temporarily until I can sort out the wiring.
I have now made a small shelf for the radio to sit on in the dinette; this has been varnished and will be fitted tomorrow when it’s dry.
We said bon voyage to Maffi on “Milly M” this afternoon as he was pulling the pins and heading south. Lady Capels lock is supposed to re-open tomorrow so he will be able to get right through to London. We will probably meet up with him again on the Oxford canal or the Kennet and Avon canal if it re-opens this year. For those that don’t know a weir has collapsed on a property owned by the singer Kate Bush closing the canal. British Waterways have the responsibility to repair it which we understand is a real expensive job. So re-opening the K & A is a $64000 question at present.
