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 and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    good to hear from you. Been wondering how you are doing. We went to the Mississippi River last weekend to watch one of the lock and dam’s handle the river barge traffic…thought of you two while I was there.
