I’m returning to our days on the boat for this.
Our first trip up river and through 17 locks was in July 2015 when we attended the Boat Festival in Stratford Upon Avon.
The atmosphere was terrific and we had a wonderful time, so much so that we decided to go back the following month.
Ah. Memo to self:
Do not go to Stratford Upon Avon in the school holidays or height of the Summer Season.
Whilst we still enjoyed the trip and were lucky to find a lovely place to berth, we got thumped by two ladies in a rowing boat who weren’t looking where they were going and a group of lads under the influence found it hysterically funny when they rammed into us in a motor boat. I legged it up to the rental company concerned who not only called them in early, but also retained their deposit.
This is one of my favourite pictures of the boat which was taken in August 2015.
It was a good life, and what took just over an hour in the car took 3 or 4 days by boat depending where we stopped for the night. Wonderful memories.
