Fred and Lisa came to see us at Shackerston and we had nice meal at the Rising Sun pub (and a few beers!!). Their boat is coming along really well at Kingfishers.
Then Dai’s daughter Nikki came out when we were at Hinckley and took us to see her new house which is lovely - so another nice night out.
And today Amy has come for a few days on the train to where we are today at Atherstone (ha ha, 11 locks tomorrow!). Amy’s boyfriend is a veggie so we’re treating her to steak dinner tonight (back to pasta and pasta and more pasta next week Amy). Foxxie went mental when Amy arrived - singing for hours!!!
So, done the Ashby Canal and now back on the Coventry heading towards the Trent and Mersey. Not going to mention the rain ---- lovely sunshine as I write this. Yes really!
Since last blog we have done … 34 miles and 0 locks
Total since Setting Off ….. 1907 miles and 1556 locks
