Goodness gracious.

14 Locks, 7 Miles. Now moored at Bourne End


British Waterways vehicle. Now more of these would be great, only one we have seen.

It was a wee bit foggy this morning when we set off but the sun eventually burnt through to give us another hot muggy day. We were again travelling with Mike and Denise which made life a lot easier.

It was a surprise when we spotted Narrowboat Hertford (along way from home, seen here at Cowroast lock) which was last seen moored at College cruisers on the Oxford canal after being salvaged from the river Thames at Folly bridge. The guys at college cruisers must have worked long and hard to refurbish the boat and get it back into shape to hire out again. The hirer said he had no complaints with the boat so they must have done a good job in a very short space of time.


Risen from the depths, very fast repair job, looks ok too.

We stopped off at Berkhamsted for lunch and nipped over to Waitrose to do a quick shop before doing the short run to our present mooring.


Spot the rabbit!

660 locks, 855 miles, 25 Tunnels, 38 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
