Summer Cruise#2-Day31-33 Resting

Thursday and a rest day. David leaves us around lunchtime as his wife plus Mother-in-law swing past in their drive home back to Somerset. The 5 nights went by so quickly. My old tooth was playing up, so I tried to get Denplan to sort a dentist – always tricky when you’re out & about plus with no phone signal on the boat even worse! But they came through in the end, well, on Friday.

So David’s trip was 4 days cruising – 24.5 engine hours, 44.5 miles and 38 locks! Back at Gnosall. Will spend a few days here – having a rest, doing washing, taking on water and thinking of the next phase.

Potentially, we are only 14 days away from “home” at Yelvertoft and that’s doing our ponderous 4 hours/day.  We need to spend a week here and another week there. Hopefully we’ll meet up with the Sicilians (Stephen & Lucia) as they are back and about to cruise around the Warwickshire ring – so our journeys could coincide.

We also want to see Jenny & Penny and hope they can pop up for a visit.

Will bimble off on Sunday to Brewood – the pub there has a laundry, so maybe get all the bedding down in one go & dry too.

This must be a contender for the best kept water point?

And these lassies were out on a Hen party!
