We moved aboard Narrowboat Inca on the 7th of April and it still feels like we are on one long holiday. So far we have covered 254 miles and gone through 234 locks. It works out that we average 2.6 miles a day (about the speed of a snail). Still we don't care as we are very happy with the way things are going so far.
On the blog front we have now had over 6000 views and the statistics are very surprising. We get views mostly from the UK as you would expect but we also have views from all over the world.
All time views
United Kingdom 5134
United States 281
Plus visits from China , Japan , Brazil , Turkey and many other countries although i suspect many are just people coming across us by chance.
This week we have moved further north but only 12 miles which works out about right with our average snail speed of 2.6 miles a day.
As we had a few bits of shopping we decided to head for Berkhamsted and try and get a mooring outside of Waitrose.
On our way to Berkhamsted we met a few boaters coming from the Tring summit direction saying that the summit was closed as someone had left a paddle on a lock open and drained the whole section of canal. On Friday morning Carolyn rang the Chandlers at Cowroast and the man there said the level had been low and was now down by about 4 inches and it had not been as bad as we were told.
So after Carolyn had completed her retail therapy in the town we pulled pins at 11 o clock.
We will stay here until Monday then move on as we have a very special visitor coming on Thursday to spend a couple of weeks with us and we need somewhere safe for her mum Chloe to park my old car (which she got for nothing) for a few days.
