Staging post

We came up to the boat this morning after I’d finished work; Adrian had been in London overnight for work.  We’re here because we are having a weekend seeing family and friends in Cheshire, so this is a useful stopping point.  We stopped for shopping on the way, and once at the boat got the fire lit.

This afternoon we walked down the towpath to Cosgrove and the aqueduct.  The canal is looking very autumnal, with lots of fallen leaves.

We’ll be off up to Cheshire in the morning.

Salodin on test

The December Canal Boat is out, and includes my boat test on Salodin by Braidbar Boats.

Glascote Locks

I went up to Briar Rose after work yesterday, and spent the night on board.  Fortunately the fire lit very easily, and was soon warming up the boat.  This morning I drove up to Glascote for a boat test. 

Due to the logistics of the owner, we started at 8.30, and were done by the time we are normally just getting going!
