We paid up all our marina fees and picked up a couple of bags of coal and then filled with water before we set off. You have a great feeling of the shackles coming off when you leave a marina, and Tooty (the cat) was going mad with delight as he could see grass again out of the porthole windows.
As we got to the canal we met another boat. It has been so quiet so it was surprising, but it was also quiet nice following another boat.
It was lovely to be out appreciating the countryside again, with the leaves off the trees and the ducks looking for partners.
Del was soon out with his black bag and picking up the rubbish so we don't have to look at it..
Del did some brasses in the late afternoon till dark and then we got in the warm and Al had a nice steak on the go.. Lovely!
