We’re almost at the end of our trip. In May we planned just a week away but we’ve been out for almost 6 weeks! We’ve booked ‘Chance’ into Brinklow Marina again for a month so that James can be home for his pre op next week and then the operation on July 10th.
Last night we all went out for a meal at The Greyhound at Hawkesbury Junction a great evening with good company and good food. We all were invited back by Bill and Eileen on to nb ‘New Dawn’ for coffee and port, to finish off a lovely evening.
Doug, Chris, Les, Eileen, Bill and James – all very well sated.
Our walk back to the boats was blighted by heavy rain – what’s new!
Today nb’s ‘New Dawn’ and ‘Eleventh Heaven’ left Hawkesbury Junction in the rain to continue their journey, we finally left around 2 o’clock when the weather improved. We had a lovely time and wish all of you safe and happy cruising and hope to meet up again in the future.
‘Chance’ about to enter the “stop lock” at Hawkesbury (about 9 inches difference in the water level between the Oxford Canal and the Coventry Canal).
We travelled for a few hours and moored this evening back on the North Oxford Canal – the weather this evening is a world away from what is was like this morning. There has been so much rain in the last couple of days the canal is quite a bit higher than normal. We are only about an hour away from the marina so tomorrow will be our last day.
