Just a wee cruise.

0 Locks, 2.52 Miles. Now moored back at Newbold.

This morning we were up earlier than usual so that we could do a washing run up to Lime farm Marina for a much needed pump out. A quick stop by the Barley Mow pub for water on both our outward journey and the return trip ensures we have enough water for a while.

Upon our return to Newbold the place was deserted so we are moored pretty close to where we were before although this will only be for 1 night. We have to move down to Brownsover by Tuesday for a BSC examination (part of the sale contract) by Andrew Phasey who did our last BSC 2 years ago.

Once the BSC has been completed we will have 1 last chance for a bit of cruising before hand over date of the 23rd probably at Brownsover or Newbold by the Barley Mow where we can get a rental car close by to unload the boat.

2233 locks, 4325.30 miles, 94 tunnels, 131 swing bridges and 58 lift bridges since Nov 2006

that will be a rather sad day for you, but as the saying goes - as one door closes another one opens!

Hi Carol
As you say I am not looking forward to the 23rd. We just have to be positive that things are happen for a reason. I was looking forward to our cruise to London.
