Tuesday 4th April - Spring Cruise

We arrived at the boat at lunchtime, planning to leave the marina and make our way towards Hawksbury Junction. However we had a call from our friends to say that they were stuck at Aston Lock on the Trent and Mersey as the ground paddle is blocked, requiring the lock to be emptied to effect a repair. Navigation will not be open again until the 7th April. We decided to stay in the marina and wash the boat as we would not be able to wash the port side again until we were well passed Fradley Junction.

The Daffodils which line the entrance road to the marina have been a beautiful show over the last month but are almost at the end of the life.


  1. Was just thinking about you two today and wondering when you would be cruising again. Looking forward to following your travels once again this year. We were in Newbury a few weeks ago and walked along the river there, remembering when we first met you and 'Chance'. Love to you both, Karen

  2. Lovely to hear from you both. We were just talking about the K & A today to a local Lockie and thought about you. Strange how these coincidences happen. Trust all is well at your end.
    Love Bob and June
