We are spending a couple of days moored here while Paul is doing some remedial work to the hull. Where is here? Well not too sure really, we are sort of between places. A couple of days ago we came up through the flight of 10 locks at Stockton. Luckily paired with another boat, so that even with topping up with water, we did the lot in about 2 hours. In the dry too! Weather has been a bit mixed lately with some heavy rain. However if it’s raining we just stay where we are and light the fire! Today is lovely and sunny, blue sky and birds singing. Time to do some washing!! Not so straight forward as for you guys, firstly we have to ensure we have enough water and check where the next water point is! Especially important as we are staying put for a couple of days. Then we need to run the engine to ensure that we have enough power.
Think we will be moving on tomorrow though which will be 3 locks at Calcutt then on to the junction with the Oxford Canal (we are on the Grand Union at present) where we will head south, or turn right!
