This is Steve & Viv Carter's log of the trips and travails on the narrowboat Adagio – liveaboards from October 2015. Then back to the shore, in Trefin, Wales from November 2019. "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." (Mark Twain)” firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Summer Cruise#1 – Day 6?
Getting a bit behind here, what with staying put from Friday thru to Monday morning but it was soooo nice to not to move when it was soooo hot. And being a weekend a lot of the world chugged by but not us, neither Hodma’dod nor Twelve and a bit moved at all. Anyway, Monday came and we all moved off. We met up at the Rugby visitor moorings (not very welcoming – toilet block all boarded up and only just room to fit in for water), where the crew of all boats tramped off to Tesco’s et al,
With the engine running we can use many electrical appliances (up to 3.5 kW!) and one of our favourites is the Slow Cooker – here is the Morphy Richards one, note how the heater/controller fits neatly inside – handy to pack on a boat.
And here it is unpacked. The pan is removable – handy for using on the hob to brown meat and get things boiling and also for washing too.
