At 58 feet length, TQ (as we call her) is a steel hull narrow boat built by Colecraft and fitted out by Elton Moss Boatbuilders. Currently based at Aqueduct Marina in Cheshire we're able to cruise some of the most popular waterways in Britain. The Shropshire Union, The Trent and Mersey, The Llangollen Canal, The Four Counties Ring and Cheshire Ring and more.

Our friendly Syndicate decided to go down the Self Management route on 1st March 2012 and so far it has been very successful. Please visit the other pages in this blog to see the new Web Site and if shares are available for sale. (There'll not be many).

I am having to place a watermark on the blog content as someone on Facebook is stealing photos and claiming them as their own. I wouldn't mind if they asked first and attributed it to my blog. If it continues I will name and shame them. I hope it doesn't spoil your enjoyment.

The best day so far.

We slipped our mooring near Bridge 11 on the Oxford Canal at 07:50hrs. and what a beautiful morning. Trouble is, it's surrounded by the M6 and the M69 Motorways and the road roar is quite loud and all through the night.
Here's what it looked like:-

Early morning
Only twenty miles today, along the Oxford, the Coventry and the Ashby. We're moored just South of Bridge 38 AKA Fox Bridge, and here's some of what we saw today:-

Approaching Hawksbury Junction

In the Stop Lock

Through the bridge and sharp right
We filled the water tank here, it took ages, loads of pressure but not much flow.

Charity Dock doesn't change much
Just South of Bridge 38
Tonight we're miles away from any motorway or main road and the silence is deafening.
And look what Lin's made for tea today, tomorrow and the next day- absolutely beautiful:-
In the left corner, Cottage Pie. In the right corner, Blackberry and Apple Crumble.

Me being arty.
The weather has been the best today, perhaps a shade too hot, but tomorrow its's all down hill. Some sun early, cloudy later, then heavy rain on Friday.
