On the move again…

Rog’s hospital appointment went as planned on Wednesday, so we spent yesterday stocking up the boat with provisions, and generally getting ready to cruise again.  This morning at 10 o’clock, having paid our dues, we waved good bye to our new friends at Willowtree Marina (we will miss them, especially Jim and Wendy on nb Lily May, Jackie the Marina secretary, and Arthur the manager)  They have been unbelievably kind to us during our stay, and we can’t  recommend them highly enough to anyone who needs a mooring at short notice in the area.

We cruised for just over 4 hours today, travelled 10.4 miles and worked 3 locks – we think that’s enough for Rog’s foot to cope with on the first day – we are moored right opposite Harefield Marina, another of our old haunts – we used to moor nb Teasel here many moons ago.
