Still a lovely evening, and one of the best views of a pub car park I’ve seen for a while!
Today we had a little brown frog on board. How did he get there? It was surprisingly easy to catch him, and I popped him on the bank before the next bridge.
We’ve now finished this year’s adventure on Vagabond – we are moored up in sight of the Willeymore Lock Tavern ready for tonight’s meal and handover tomorrow.
Our trip has consisted of around 75 miles of canal, 28 locks, 14 lift bridges, 6 tunnels, 4 aquaducts and 4 narrow sections. It’s been a great time, helped by a lot of decent summer weather. It’s just a shame that Barney hasn’t enjoyed being in the boat this trip – we certainly won’t be inviting him again…
Today has been busy – 2 narrow sections, 2 aquaducts, 2 tunnels and 2 locks. And 11 miles of canal…
We are now back in England near Hindford, where we were a few days ago, but in a more isolated spot with a better Internet connection.
A shower was forecast for 5pm tonight, and, sure enough, 2 minutes after we had moored, there was a clap of thunder and it started raining – though there hasn’t been much. The Bank Holiday must be approaching!
