8 more sleeps to go !

...... until we are living on Jandai as continuous cruisers !   How exciting is that ? We left Mercia Marina where we have been moored for last year on Thursday to take a leisurely 2 days to get up to Trent Lock.    Mercia Marina at Willington on the T & M has been a great place to moor and we would recommend it to everyone.
Jandai is now at Kingfishers Narrowboats (John and Mick who built her) to have her bottom blacked and a few minor jobs done.     She will be one year old on April 1st.     We are going to leave the house on Sun March 28 and set off on our new life Mon March 29.    Planning on going south first but no definite route worked out.    
This coming week is another of clearing the house.    It is up for sale but with us now going into spring, not worried about leaving it empty.
8 more sleeps to go !


  1. How exciting! I wish you both a wonderful new life afloat and hope to bump into you (not literally, I promise) somewhere along the waterways.
    Happy cruising!
