We awoke this morning to something close to a winter wonderland, everything was glistening white with frost. Overnight the temperature had dropped to -5.4deg C, any wonder we got a frost. Needless to say we were in no hurry to go up on deck to start moving until very late morning.

We only crossed path's with 1 community trust boat which wasn't surprising as it's only silly beggars like us that cruise this time of year, but hey, its all part of the fun. At Nash Mills we filled the water tank so we are all set for the next week.

Goodbye to the M25 for sometime

We are now moored outside the Apsley Mills marina where we plan to stay for the next 14 days.We have been up to Sainsbury's and Homebase for some shopping and walking along the towpath between locks 66 & 67 we were amazed to find only 2 boats moored in this pound. Last November the place was full with at least 12 boats constantly moored up. We had heard that BW had been through here and had a clean out and this proved to be correct.
