Wash Day Blue’s or Cruise.

0 Locks, 0.66 Miles. Now moored at Tixall Wide.

Several factors came into play today. First up was that we had been at the junction for 48hrs (maximum permitted), second was that it was a cracker of a day for a short cruise, last but not least was the washing machine was full. You guessed it, wash day!

We pulled up onto the water point to ensure we had plenty of water for the next few days and the washing machine was part way through it’s cycle before we left. Today has been the first day this year we have thrown open the doors front and rear to allow the lovely warm breeze to flow through cooling the boat. If this is a taste of Summer to come it’s going to be a scorcher.

2214 locks, 4249.73 miles, 91 tunnels, 130 swing bridges and 58 lift bridges since Nov 2006

Hope Dot is feeling better now. The sunshine will certainly make her feel brighter.
