...We've waited six months for this, and such a lot has happened in that time. We (our Syndicate) has decided to go down the self managed route, and it's proving to be pretty good so far. TQ has had a new paint job and is looking sparkling. As always there is work to be done and I, as maintenance manager, have decided that this week will be dedicated mainly to maintenance. So we're not going far, and sticking to the pound between Braunston, Hillmorton and Napton. We'll not be going through any locks, saving water for the Summer, as we're heading into the wettest drought on record. (Just a thought, I wonder what would happen if (as we do) everyone paid £x for their car tax only to find we can only navigate through traffic lights from 10:00 to 16:00). Ouch!
We're moored in a quiet country spot, somewhere between bridges 111 and 112, but there's quite a lot of canal traffic about. Tomorrow looks like a write off weather wise, heavy rain and gales and I think we're going to hole up for the day.
Day 5: BCLM.
