Sorry, it has been a while since the last post. I spent the week in Braunston and environs, getting boat parts, setting bits of the boat to rights, etc. I am now more ready for cold weather, with insulation in strategic places, and have other small jobs dealt with.
My parents arrived from Canada yesterday (I fetched them from Heathrow- not myt favourite British place). All good, however, and they are installed. We started a cruise this morning, north on the north Oxford Canal, towards Nuneaton. We are moored on a delightful stretch of the canal, just outside the village of Brinklow. We are going further north tomorrow, and will join the Coventry canal, then further north through Nuneaton. We’ll have to keep an eye on the rain, in case the Soar River gets too full, in which case we’ll chose an alternate route.
