we have abandoned ship!! Last month we finally admitted to ourselves and each other that we are wimps, and that living on the boat in the winter is not for us! To that end we have rented a cottage near Northampton, taken our furniture out of storage and set up home ‘on the bank’ again. We are not selling up however, and will do extended cruising in the spring, summer and autumn, and tuck ourselves up for the winter.
We take our hats off to all our brave friends who are still ‘continuously
cruising stuck in the ice’, struggling to fill water tanks, empty loos and get fuel for engines and stoves, and hope you won’t think too badly of us for throwing in the towel.
The blog will resume with some photos of our new environs just as soon as I find the camera!
