With Carolyn away it gave me a chance to do all those little jobs you never get around to. I have now cut up the last of the wood on the roof and have now sharpened and serviced the chainsaw ready for next winter. Plus countless other jobs.
With the return of Carolyn on Friday we decided to make an early start on Saturday and dropped down the 3 locks at Hillmorton .We wanted to do a big shop at Tesco in Rugby as there is a Tesco close to the moorings at Brownsover. Carolyn really missed her beloved windlass….
On Sunday morning we pulled pins at 08.15..Yet again we were lucky to have glorious sunshine as we cruised towards Hawkesbury Junction.
At Hawkesbury junction we leave the Oxford canal and drop down the 12 inches in the lock and join the Coventry canal. After dropping down the lock there is a real acute turn to the right and no matter how hard i try i just cant get around in one go.
We plan another long day tomorrow with the first hurdle of the day being the Atherstone flight of locks and then we will just see how far we get ….
