Our second year of owning Briar Rose is now complete -- and circumstances meant that we used the boat a lot less than during the first year. Adrian spent most of his spare time with his mum as she was ill, and we didn't get our usual long break in the autumn.
As a result, during year two we covered only 310 miles, passed through only 100 locks, and clocked up just 183.4 engine hours. We (actually, mostly just I!) spend 61 nights on board. The furthest north we went was Crick and the furthest south was Grove Lock.
However, we're planning a much more ambitious programme of travels this year, including four weeks in September.
