The Itch to Move

We really had the itch to move today and the weather wasn't that great, but we took a chance. We got up to the water point and spotted bloggers Chas and Ann on n.b Moore 2 Life and while filling up we were offered a cup of tea...Rude not too! Walking by was Bruce and Sheila from n.b Sanity Again and we had a quick chat to them as well.
We all said our goodbyes and Al popped over the farm shop to pick up some veggies. We then went through the two locks and made our way to Wolseley Bridge where we spotted some wood. We were getting a bit low and have been lucky enough not to have used any coal yet, in fact the coal bags are starting to perish and need to be transferred into new sacks, not an easy task.Loaded up with wood and it starting to rain, we moored up just through the next bridge. We lit the fire and snuggled in for the night. We were being watched though!!!

Hi Del and Al

Just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed your blog since selling our boat "Spirit" in 2009, we did meet you both once at Hillmorton Locks, and your fantastic blog has helped give us our canal fix whilst back on land. We have started a blog ourselves now as we hope to be back on the cut next year and hope that you don't mind that we have added you to ours. Hope to meet up with you both next year maybe. keep up the good work.
