Still up the Wendover arm and we still can’t believe how quiet it is. We have seen a few boats come up to the end and turn and one or two of them have stopped the night, but mostly we have had it all to ourselves.
But all good things must come to an end and its time to move on again. On Monday morning after a superb weekend we pulled pins at 10.00 and could see that the level was down on the arm. As we passed the pumping station two pumps were pumping flat out .
It has certainly been a good year for wild fruit and look at this lot. Only trouble is that they were in someone's garden. But we have done very well with Blackberries and Carolyn is now making her second batch of jam. With the crab apples coming on it will soon be time to start gathering them for some of Carolyn's delicious Crab Apple jelly.
After mooring we decided to take Molly and Hamish out for a walk and it wasn't long before we passed this house. Carolyn had a good laugh , but i just didn't get it. I seem to remember passing a boat with a similar name not long ago and i didn't get that either.
We will spend the night here and then an early start tomorrow morning as we have 15 locks and about 6 hours of cruising to get to our next destination. More about that in our next post.
