We are off early tomorrow to explore waters, canals and locks anew.
It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were planning our first trip to Stratford and all the locks en route awaited us.
I kept a diary of our trip, the fun we had, and the near disasters.
For those new to my blog, a warm welcome and to give you an idea of what novices we were (and still are) you can read about it here:
The Festival part 1
The Festival Part 2
This picture was taken at Pershore last year, and it was littl’ ol’ me who berthed us!
We managed Stratford again in August 2015 (more posts refer), and also last year but not for the festival. The picture of the boat outside the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in my header was taken then.
After Stratford, comes a whole new ball game, or contact water sports as some people refer to boating as!
We wanted to explore the canals this year, and are going to do just that, even if it is a one way trip.
One of the flights has 46 locks in it. Oh well, that’s half of the 97 en route out of the way in one day then!
We’ve decided to keep our log book and use it as a diary for our last trip on the boat that has been home for almost three years.
No posts while we’re away I’m afraid, but we’ll be back with our tale, photos and more poetry I expect. Hubby might even do some more sketching.
Hope you won’t miss me too much!
