Back on Day 9!

Just a short note to let you all know we are back at base armed with loads of photos and tales of our journey.
We originally allowed ourselves 9 days for the trip, travelling 5 hours a day over the 79 mile journey.
It didn’t quite work out like that.

We took 4 days to get to Stratford and our canal licence started on Saturday 22nd April, so we missed the major celebrations for Shakespeare who died 401 years ago. His are one of the few historical dates I can remember.

April 23rd 1564 – April 23rd 1616.

After that, it was all new to us.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
