Water and lots of it.

0 Locks, 2 miles, now moored at Clifton cruisers.
Total of 272 locks and 337 miles and 16 Tunnels since 5th Nov 2006

Not much of a day weather wise. Showers this morning, heavy rain around lunchtime and now light showers again.
We have seen some funny sight’s today with helmsman trying to keep dry, hand held umbrella’s, tiller mounted versions or just wrap up well and brave it souls.
Me, I came in the last category with my gum boots, (wellies) water proof trousers and PVC raincoat. I had to motor up to the Rugby arm and turn around in the winding hole before motoring down to Clifton cruisers to await the return of our Mikuni heater tomorrow morning. All this took less than an hour.
We are looking forward to venturing into new territory this coming week and for the next 10 – 12 weeks, yippee. The Oxford canal (south), River Thames (Isis) to Lechlade and the Kennet & Avon now that’s back in business again.
