Odd job day.

0 Locks 0 miles still moored at bridge 58 Oxford canal.
Total of 221 locks and 2331/2 miles and 8 Tunnels since 5th Nov 2006

Today was to be a quiet day to catch up on small jobs that can build up if you don’t keep on top of them.
We again spoke to the Hawkes bay couple (Jane and Hugh) and found out that their boat although not sign written is called Poetry. They had thought of calling it Tukituki, a Maori word until they found out the definition of this name was Demolition so they thought better of it.
The boat is a Probuild hull with a private fit out and will be up for sale again in 6 months time as they are only allowed to stay here that long.
Other than feeding the remaining 3 ducklings, there were originally 9, and the odd swan the only other excitement was a visit to Homebase and Tesco’s.
