Late Start Again

2 Locks, 4 Miles. Now moored at Slapton

This morning we contacted Tim Garland of Garland Hoods to arrange to get a couple of repairs and modifications done to the cratch  and stern covers. As he was unable to see us until lunch time I started to do a bit more painting just to keep the boat up to scratch.

Once Tim had been and taken away the covers for repair we set off rather late in the afternoon but we were only planning on a short trip just to put some mileage behind us. The boat feels naked without the covers on but it will only be for a couple of days. Except for a couple of boats heading north we had the canal to ourselves again which is the time that we tend to see more wild life. Today was no exception with the sighting of a female Muntjac deer which we have not seen for some time.

Total of 630 locks, 852 miles, 25 Tunnels, 37 swing bridges and 19 lift bridges since Nov 2006
