We did as we said and stayed put over the weekend watching sport and sorting ourselves out.. The brasses now are in desperate need of TLC as Del still can't polish with his arm. The lump has gone down a bit and now he has chronic tennis elbow in it. So lets hope it heals before the engine gives up the ghost!
We decided to set off on the Monday as the weather was so nice, and do a long cruise.
We then set off to Stoke Hammond and this lock was in our favour, in fact the gates were even open for us.
It is plain cruising from here around Milton Keynes, and apart from the leaves and plastic bags it was easy cruising. We did a couple of washes on route and we now had fresh bedding for tonight.
It was a cruise which took us six hours with a couple of stops along the way. It had just started to drizzle and we just got there before it started to get dark.
