With such a mizzy day in prospect we stayed in.......Del updating drivers all day and Al reading her book.... The ice is still covering the canal but we've got to say it is thinning. The poor old batteries are now starting to struggle in this cold weather and we seem to be running the engine longer and longer to keep them up to full capacity. We are getting a bit fed up with it all now and just want to move on. We are at half a tank of diesel and half a tank of water, and the poo tank is just over half full. But we're still on a high and have loads of things to look forward too. Watch this space!
